Powell-Williamson House, Oak Park

I first thought this might have been a school that was later transformed into a house, but that is not the case. Olivia Williamson Braddy writes: This house was built for Joseph Jackson “Joe” Powell (1871-1957) and his wife, Ava Cynthia Youmans. Five children were born and reared here. After Cynthia’s death in 1942, Joe married Maggie Keene Morris. Following their deaths, the house was sold to Schley Williamson and continued as a dwelling until his daughter, Vernery Williamson Cason, passed away in 2010. It was always used as a residence.

    A brick house in rural south GA built before 1930 is unusual…I too think this house started as some kind of nonresidential public use.
