Now home to the Candler County Historical Society Museum, the old Metter High School is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a solid example of Greek Revival architecture.

South Metter National Register Historic District
Though I’d passed through Metter several times before, I had never really taken the time to explore it’s residential neighborhoods until yesterday. I was very impressed with not only the south side of Broad Street, known for several blocks on Kennedy, Rountree, Lewis, and Leroy Streets as the South Metter Historic District, but with houses on the north side of Broad Street, as well. Metter is a beautiful small town, filled with well-maintained examples of late-nineteenth and early-twentieth century arcchitecture. This charming home might well be my favorite!
North Rountree Street
Though featuring elements of neoclassical style and perhaps built a bit later than the Victorian era, this house exhibits many Victorian features. Also, while the streets on the north side of Broad Street are not listed as part of the South Metter National Register Historic District, many are just as architecturally interesting and bear further investigation.
