Dresden neighborhood - "big wall" building and abandoned vernacular

It's the west end of Dresden. Maybe it's Ashford Park. Anyway, a great location for tear-downs but not a legacy of great architecture.

The original homes do have their charms: Nice lot, modest house, 2 outbuildings, a great house for grandma and grandpa. But next door, the big wall - the big monolithic wall.

There are 2 abandoned vernacular homes on Dresden near Ellijay that always catch my eye and another hidden in the overgrowth. These would be happy anywhere in the rural south. Makes me curious about the history of the area.

Next door is a modest 1-story with porch and dormer on a great hilltop lot.

This one on Ellijay hides in the brush. Elegant proportions. It can't last long.
