As we look at this homestead near Spring Place, GA., we see the morning sun beginning to thaw the frosted ground once tilled by sharecroppers.  Long ago families harvested plentiful crops from the soil and watered their livestock at the spring.  Then, the soil depleted of its mineral, they abandoned the site to nature.  A weathered cabin, a battered wagon and an old chain rope swing are all that remain.

This painting is a companion piece to Monument to An Era.  Since its completion all evidence of the homestead has disappeared, leaving Ben Hampton's artistic rendering the only proof it ever existed.  This picture is the first in a series of Vanishing Heritages.
