Designed by J. W. Golucke in 1900, this courthouse survived the Flint River floods of 1924, 1929, and the historic flood of 1994, during which waters nearly reached the second floor. Golucke was Georgia’s most prolific courthouse architect, but ironically died in prison in Newton in 1907, having been convicted of misappropriating funds in the construction of the very courthouse seen here. Though no longer used as a courthouse, it is now utilized by a variety of public service entities.
Built by William Jay for Malcolm Archibald McRainey
Due to past problems with thieves and other vandals, the owner of this house, who lives just next door, is armed. Do not attempt to enter this house or the property itself. It is safest to shoot this from the road, or risk being shot; I strongly advise against trespassing here! Please do not leave rude personal comments about the owner of this house in the future. I understand that there have been many misunderstandings, but I also totally understand why the owner has the attitude she does toward trespassers.
