Welcome to Irwinville Farms! This new website, brought to you by Vanishing South Georgia, will bring together in one place the Library of Congress archive of Farm Security Administration images of life around the Irwinville Farms resettlement community, one of many such emergency assistance projects created by the federal government during the Great Depression of the 1930s. I hope viewers will help identify the people in these images as well as share family stories and anecdotes passed down through the generations. All images on this site are courtesy of the Library of Congress, unless otherwise noted; family images from this period of Irwinville’s history are welcome and actively solicited.
