Milledgeville, Ga – A quick post today. Looking at the Compton-Fowler-McKnight Cottage, you’d never know it’s one of the oldest existing houses in Milledgeville! Originally built in a Federal style, the look of this house has changed over the years.
Very little has changed since the 1936 photo, with exception of the shutters being removed on the side of the house. The Compton-Fowler-McKnight Cottage has been moved over the years to its current location. The porch that we see today isn’t original to the house, it dates to the late 1800s. In a town with so much antebellum history and grand architecture, this home is unique.
I haven’t been able to track down other information that I can verify to date. As I have more details on this home, will update the post. Thanks for reading the blog today!
