Turner House, 1916, McDonough

The Turner House is one of the architectural standouts of McDonough and is a beautifully maintained property. Were it not for the buttresses, I would consider it a Prairie Style house; I suppose it falls somewhere in the Renaissance Revival.

Globe Hotel, 1827 & 1882, McDonough

The Globe Hotel originally stood a half block away on the courthouse square and was moved in 1938 to its present location. It is the oldest commercial structure in McDonough. The original section [the right side in the photos] dates to 1827 and the gabled wing [left side] was added circa 1882.

McDonough Presbyterian Church, 1922

The McDonough Presbyterian Church was established in August 1827 with 25 members. Reverend James A. Gamble was the first minister. This church, built in 1922, replaced an earlier structure built in 1890. It served the congregation until 1974, when a new church was built at another location.

Henry County Courthouse, 1897, McDonough

Golucke & Stewart designed this courthouse in the Richardsonian Romanesque style, which they also employed in the plans of the Schley, Union, and Madison county courthouses. Though its appearance has been altered by expansions over the years, it remains a focal point of downtown McDonough.
