Maxwell-Knox House,1857, Lexington

The last survivor of the houses that once surrounded the courthouse square, the Knox house largely retains its original appearance. The thin columns are rarely found on I-Houses in Georgia, and their raised granite bases are even more unusual. They’re apparently later additions, as they’re not visible an image of the house made by Frances Benjamin Johnston for he Historic American Buildings Survey in 1939.
