Zachry-Kingston House, Circa 1830, Morgan County

This early Plantation Plain with Federal details was restored circa 1985. Windows, weatherboarding, chimneys, and the front portico were all replaced with historic materials. Two outbuildings were also added to the property at the time of the restoration.

The well-maintained home is located near the Oconee River near the community of Buckhead.

Stuart House, Circa 1890, Morgan County

A resource survey identifies this simply as “Mrs. Stuart’s House”. I hope to learn more about it.

It’s a nice example of a Folk Victorian farmhouse and has been brought back to an earlier appearance after the removal of asbestos siding and awning.

Talmadge Cooper House, 1866, Morgan County

The only information I can locate on this property identifies it as the Talmadge Cooper place. The house was built in 1866 and the Queen Anne/Second Empire details added circa 1870.

Gabled-Ell Farmhouse, Morgan County

This simple Folk Victorian farmhouse represents one of the most common forms of late-19th and early-20th century architecture in Georgia.

Georgian Cottage, Morgan County

Robin’s Nest, 1830s, Morgan County

This Greek Revival landmark is also known as The Oaks Plantation and the Bennett-McIntire House, for previous owners. It is a beautifully maintained property. Morgan County notes that the earliest deed extant for the house dates to 1840, but it likely predates that by a few years. It was on the old stage road between Charleston and New Orleans.

St. Paul Meetinghouse, 1870s, Hancock County

Harrell Lawson’s History of St. Pau CME Church [2005] describes the two-story meetinghouse adjacent to the church as a building previously used as a school for the secular education of the youth of the community and as a meeting place for Masons and a burial society founded by St. Paul members in the early 1900’s.

A resource survey conducted in 2001 dates the structure to circa 1870. It was built in the school/lodge combination common among African-American congregations in this part of Georgia in the late 19th century. These structures inevitably served as de facto community centers, as well. No matter when they were built, they are important resources.

Augusta, Gibson & Sandersville Railroad Depot, Circa 1886, Mitchell

This beautifully restored Victorian passenger and freight depot is the centerpiece of a nice public park and also houses a museum of local history. A similar depot survives down the line at Matthews. The Augusta, Gibson & Sandersville was the impetus for the settlement of Mitchell and the town grew rapidly as a result of the depot’s construction.
