Atlanta, GA – Walking around Atlanta’s Inman Park neighborhood today, you’d never know it had fallen into disrepair in the late 1960s. The Beath-Dickey House started the revitalization of Inman Park, Atlanta’s first planned suburb.
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!
Luthersville, GA – Meriwether County – This 1902 home, built by the Upshaw family is now known as Parker Place Events has quite a history! This home has 18 stained glass windows and many exterior doors. It was built to house guests as a boarding house. It’s rumored that the first car in Luthersville (and all of Meriwether County) belonged to the Upshaw family.
In the 1960s, prior owners had the train depot moved to the property. Today this beautiful venue operates as Parker Place Events. Neat history of this beautiful home!
Bainbridge, GA – Decatur County – Incorporated in 1829, Bainbridge is one beautiful town! Located along the Flint River, the variety of old homes is impressive. Before being named Bainbridge, it was known as Fort Hughes, Burgess Town, and Pucknawhitla. Let’s take a look at some of the amazing homes around town.
Happy New Year! Looking back through 2017, we saw some amazing Old Homes in Georgia, Florida, Alabama, and Mississippi! This would have published earlier but I’ve been recovering from the Rose Bowl – what a game. Go Dawgs! Getting to just 10 homes is difficult – would rather use a top 100 but figured that post would be way too long LOL. These are in no particular order!
