On our way to Camden and Gee’s Bend last month, we went through Hayneville, and saw the Lowndes County Courthouse – *love* those curved staircases on each side:
Next was Furman, Alabama where the Furman Methodist Church was established in 1860. See that latticework on the steeple?
This is Wakefield – the *real* reason we made sure to stop in Furman – it was built around 1860, and see all that green latticework all across the front balconies? It wasn’t until I got home that I thought about the connection between the house and the Methodist church both being built around 1860 and both using latticework.
It’s Steamboat Gothic style. And actually, what I’m calling a balcony is really a loggia because it’s enclosed on five sides (back, both sides, ceiling, floor).
