Americus, GA – Looking at this stately 1893 Victorian and a historical marker out front, I got curious to learn more about Speaker Crisp. The more I read, the more I found a love story – and it seems perfect to share on Valentine’s Day!
Americus, Ga – Sumter County – Americus has quite a history, and a variety of beautiful old homes. Americus was known as the “Metropolis of Southwest Georgia” due to its being a cotton distribution center for the area – and at one time this was the 8th largest city in Georgia! Established in 1832, the town’s growth really started with the arrival of the railroad in 1854. There’s so much history around Americus, I’m already planning another visit!
