J. L. Brooks House, 1913, Tifton

When I lived in this neighborhood, I admired this house more than any other in the area. Cameille Carter-Pinder writes: My Grandfather had this house built in 1913. He went to Atlanta and saw the same house and fell in love with it and asked the people that owned it if he could get the plans for the house from them. He did and came back to Tifton and had the house built. He was J.L. Brooks and owned Brooks Drug store.

  2. This is my favorite historic home in Tifton. I drive by it every Sunday on my way home from church. It is especially beautiful at Christmas.

    Don’t remember the address. Someone please tell me where the house was in Tifton.

    I went to a Christmas party here several years ago. It is decorated beautifully. It looks as if Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers might be meeting Nick and Nora Charles for cocktails any evening.

    I believe this was the long time residence of one of my mother’s favorite bridge playing partners, Lewis Underwood.
