About Me


Me & Leroy

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I’m Lane, and I love Georgia History and old houses. I’ve got deep roots in Georgia, with family here since the late 1700s.  This site is where I chronicle some of the old homes and small towns that I visit throughout the state of Georgia.  There’s so much here in Georgia to visit, I will be at this for quite a while!  You’ll see all kinds of houses and learn a little about the people who lived there.  After all, a house is all about the people who inhabit it!


I’m often asked how I got into this.  Well, it’s been a hobby for years – and after retiring as a sales and marketing executive in the wireless phone business, I decided to spend more of my time writing about the interesting places I see throughout the state.

Checking out old homes is fun and I want to share them with you.  And some of the other cool spots I just happen upon (sometimes way off the beaten path).  My faithful sidekick, Leroy,  makes a few road trips with me. Thanks for joining us!  We’d love to hear from you and find out about homes to feature on the site: lane@oldgeorgiahomes.com

  1. Your pictures of our home on the Christmas tour in Washington were great. As the owner of this home we enjoy sharing our home with others who also appreciate these fine old homes. We have recently restored another beautiful old home on Robert Toombs Ave (224 ERT). If you are traveling through Washington we would be proud to show it to you. Again great pictures and write-up.

    1. Enjoyed getting to meet y’all, and will definitely let you know next time I’m coming through. And thank you for opening your home for the tour! Loved your home!

  2. I am obsessed with architecture myself. Georgia has so many confectionery delights. We truly are kindred spirits! I am a docent and board member at http://www.Sagtikosmanor.org. It’s my little piece of historical paradise. Love your photos and covet each and every house you photograph. Thank you for sharing your vision with this Vintage Girl in NY.

    1. I bet it’s fun since every old house is a little different! I’m with you – absolutely love a kitchen that looks like it’s been there from the start. Thanks for reading the blog!
