    "John E. Donalson, for whom Donalsonville, Georgia is named, built this house. It is the first home in Bainbridge known to have "wire screens." The original carriage house is behind the main house."

      Did you take "Modern Dwellings" with you on this trip? I think you'll find this one in there.

      (I know, I know, EVERYTHING is looking Barber-esque to me today, but his stuff was VERY popular in southern towns. A lot of towns can have three or four or six of his houses. They were everywhere.)

      DT - Nope I didn't have that with me, I'll see if I can find out if this is a Barber!!

      Absolutely, this is a Barber design. It is design #4 from the second edition of "Modern Dwellings", published in 1899. It was also published as design #15 in the third edition of the same book, published in 1901. Similar examples exist in St. Charles, IL., Clarksburg, WV., and Fort Gaines, GA.
