Janet Hodges Tucker writes: This house was built by J.L Ladson. Every brick was handmade, and had Mr. Ladson’s initials on each. All of the steps and window sills are North Georgia graniite, mined specifically for this house. Every room, except the kitchen and a luggage room upstairs has a fireplace, made of North Georgia marble – again, mined for this house. The house was built from the basement up, with all the interior walls being solid brick. I lived here from 1950 -1985.

  1. Brian, would you please take a picture of the “Cook house” on South Irwin Ave. in Ocilla and compare it to the Ladson house? I remember the J.L. Ladson house from when I grew up in Moultrie, and I lived in the Cook house in Ocilla in the early 1970’s. They look almost identical to me, except that sadly the Cook house is empty and has fallen into disrepair.

  3. Well, Ga Tech got back to me about the style. The professor said it could only be considered eclectic. Looks like Brian had it right all along!

  4. I called Ga Tech’s School of Design and they are looking into it for us.

    Whatever the style, I have ridden by it thousands of times as I only lived about a block away for seven years and it is a wonderful home and an awesome neighborhood.

  6. It is almost Federal meets Frank Loyd Wright. I say FLW because of the use of long, narrow bricks that give it a stronger horizontal appearance while federal styles use a more squarish look.

  7. What style would you consider this house? It is almost Federal bu not quite.
