Queen Anne Houses of Parrott

Parrott GA Historic District Queen Anne House Photograph Copyright Brian Brown Vanishing South Georgia USA 2016

Parrott is one of the most beautiful small towns in South Georgia. Perhaps the most distinctive feature of the historic district is the unusually large number of Queen Anne style Victorian houses, which range from simple to ornate in design. These were built around the turn of the last century, at the height of Parrott’s economic prominence. Most small towns boast a few examples, but when you consider the population of Parrott is around 150, it’s quite extraordinary. I hope to identify these soon, and will add names when I get them.

    These homes are beautiful. This is the type home my Grandson, Will Gay lives in in Jenkins County, It belonged to my Greatgrandfather, John D. Newton and was built in 1909. Of course there have been numerous updates over the years and is in very good condition!!

    Brian,
    Our Americus Times Recorder publisher is a Parrott native. I showed her some of your shots and turns out her mom grew up in one of the homes. I told her she needs to subscribe to your site. Great pictures !

    I grew up in Parrott and I spend a lot of time at my parents’ home there now. It is my hope that I can live there fulltime again some day if I ever decide to retire from newspapering. The town of Parrott has never been for sale. Various businesses have been on the market but the City of Parrott? No way!

    I used to drive through Parrot on a regular basis and loved to detour off the main road to get a better vision of the town. It is indeed a lovely, unique and fascinating little town. Am I correct in remembering that 10 or 15 years ago most of the well preserved commercial district was for sale? Don’t know whether it ever did get a buyer…I haven’t been that way in several years. Thanks for bringing it back to my mind Brian.
