Callaway-Porter House, 1905, Macon

This Classical Revival home is thought to have been designed by Curran R. Ellis for Merrel P. Callaway (26 November 1872-16 June 1957). Ellis may be best known in Macon as the architect of the Bibb County Courthouse. James & Olive Porter purchased the home in 1919 and commissioned an interior redesign from Neel Reid.

Cobb-Ingram House, 1919, West Point

Neel Reid, one of Georgia’s most important 20th century architects, designed this home for local Coca-Cola bottler and distributor George Cobb in 1919. It has been owned by the Ingram family since 1974.

Stubbs-Wallerstein-Wells House, 1915, Quitman

The original owners of this home stayed in an Italian villa on their honeymoon, and upon returning to Quitman, hired Neel Reid to build something of that style. The style is quite rare in rural Georgia, and an asymmetrical version such as this one is even rarer. The columns were added to give the house a Neoclassical appearance when it was purchased by Dr. Wallerstein in the early 1960s. The house is presently for sale; perhaps a serious admirer of Neel Reid’s work could buy it and remove the columns. Thanks to Chuck Ramsey, who is the listing agent for the house, for sharing the history.
