    This house has stolen my heart. However, not sure I love trains enough– they say up to 65 trains a day go through the Folkston Funnel. Loving the old fridge and old TVs! I can imagine moving right into this charming home. Not too far from the coast, either.

      After a while you don’t even hear the train but grow to love the whistle (or rather their horn?). I lived near tracks off/on through my life, would LOVE to live near them again.

        I agree Kelly. It’s very comforting to here the train.

          I didn’t think I would like the train when I bought the house but I don’t even hear it now unless someone mentions it!

            There were tracks near our house when I was a kid. When a train went by, if you were on the phone you had to wait for it to pass before you could hear. I loved the sounds of its whistle and the wheels on the track. What is it that makes it such a cozy thing? Like Kelly, I’d love to hear it again.

    Boy this house is very nice. I especially like the antique relics like the fridge and the TV. Brings back memories of my dad fixing televisions on the side. We always had a working TV ? wondering if that one works. Lots of personality this house!

    Curious what the pink (metal?) trunk-looking thing is in pic #8……….

      I believe it’s a chest freezer. I had to look closely at it, too. But I do think that is what it is. It matches the refrigerator. I’ve seen them in robins’ egg blue, too. Was quite popular back in the ’50’s.

    This is one of the best posts on this site I have ever seen. Talk about character!

    The furnishings are such a sweet component of this charming home.

    Cute, cute, cute! A little paint, a little updated decor and it would be perfect. That pink thing looks like a chest freezer. In my younger days couples from Fl would elope to Folkston. The marriage age was younger than in FL and the ceremony shorter. A teenage couple could be there and be married before dad (and his shotgun) found out they were gone.

      My husband and I were married nearby in Kingsland after going up I 95 from Florida. Didn’t know about the age thing, but Florida required that you wait for a period of time between the license/blood test and the ceremony, and you could do it all in an hour or two in Georgia (and get married by Judge Peeples in front of his fireplace if you liked). So that’s what we did.
      I would like all the portraits and artwork in this house if I bought it. Pay your property tax with the pecans from the trees.

    This house looks like heaven! Wouldn’t change a thing!

    I would like to have been related to this person who spent a lifetime here. I can imagine Friday nights watching t.v., eating breakfast in that kitchen and shelling peas on those porches. Love everything about it.
