This iconic Queen Anne house was owned by Edmund Harding Tift (1853-1917), the brother of Henry Harding Tift, the founder of Tifton. The Corry family owned it for many years thereafter.

For many years, this house was owned by Edmund Tift, the brother of the founder of Tifton, Henry Harding Tift. The Corry family owned it for many years and now it is owned by Craig Webster, formerly of Tifton, now living in Alpharetta, GA.
Thanks again, Ed. This is great background information and history…I’m very grateful for your input.
The house is still owned by Craig Webster Law. Craig and Sharon Webster reside in Tift County at the present time.
I recognize many of these Tifton scenes.
Have you seen the old First United Methodist Church (now a museum, I think–across the corner from First Baptist Church) and old St. Anne’s Episcopal Church (on the same lot as new St. Anne’s Church)?
I have seen the museum, but not St. Anne’s. I’ll be on the lookout!
St. Anne’s Church is located just off of Central Avenue, in the northern part of town. The new building (1985) is very nice, and the old building (late 1890s) is quaint and intimate.
love your site!
(am a southernerner!)
thanks for preserving and sharing!
Thanks Bryan! I agree…
