William R. Johnston House, 1912, Sylvester

This wonderful example of Tudor style architecture was built by William R. & Beulah Alford Johnston. Today it serves as Banks Funeral Home. Thanks to Mary King Givens for the identification.

    This was the home of my Great Aunt Beulah Alford Johnston, sister of my Grandmother Mattie Alford Gulley.

    Mrs. Banks was my mother’s roommate at the women’s college in Valdosta in the mid-30’s (before it became Valdosta State).

      I’d be grateful if you could find out the house’s history, Fred, as well as the Mediterranean Revival house. Perhaps you or some of your friends would know…Thanks in advance for any help!

    Used to water ski with Ray, David and Joe on Swift Creek at Lake Blackshear. Stopped by the funeral home a few years ago to say hello, but found it was now being run by three elderly brothers. (Ha!)
