Quitman, GA – Brooks County – The 1907 William Webster Walker House was designed by Israel Boyd for the Walker family. This large home housed the family of one of Quitman’s leading citizens, with many accomplishments throughout the years. The more I read, the more interesting it became!
Druid Hills Neighborhood, Atlanta – “Boxwood” is one of my favorite homes in Druid Hills. Built in 1912, it is one of the first grand estates built in the neighborhood.
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!
