These drawings were donated to the H/H collection by the University of Florida's College of Architecture; the drawings were produced by architecture students at the University of Florida who chose to participate in the preservation option of the architecture curriculum. The drawings are, therefore, the work of students.

Significance: The Burnsed Farmstead, known locally as the Mack Raulerson Place, is an example of a typical pioneer farmstead of the north Florida and south Georgia area. Although now abandoned for almost twenty years (since 1966), the main house remains in relatively good condition, with the surrounding support buildings rapidly deteriorating. Once existing on the property were a furnace shelter for butchering hogs and processing cane syrup, a smokehouse, a detached kitchen and potato house, a "curb" well, a blacksmith's shop, and several feed cribs and small barns. The existing buildings now include the main log house, the original kitchen (though barely standing), a two-hole outhouse, a smokehouse (completely overgrown and unaccessible) and a single-crib barn, approximately sixty yards from the house. Of particular note is the stick-and-mud chimney that is located along the east wall of the house.
