Stephens-Colbert House, Circa 1850, Macon

This was built by Allen R. Stephens, a farmer from Monroe County. Originally a raised Georgian Cottage with a dry moat for air circulation, it was lowered during a later renovation. Remains of a slave dwelling have been uncovered in the back yard, likely occupied by a house servant/cook.
