Dr. James E. Hamilton House, 1858, Athens

This has been home to the Alpha Delta Pi sorority since 1939. It was built by Dr. James E. Hamilton before the Civil War but the ornamental ironwork, ordered from England and delayed by Union rail blockades, was  not installed until after the war ended.

    The builder was from Columbia Co. Ga . , WINFIELD area, and built the earliest section of the fantastic WOODVILLE – plantation house which was greatly enlarged in the 19th C. WOODVILLE remains in pristine repair.
