    Does anyone know the name of the “Gainer” whose name is on the house.

    • I’m not having any luck finding out anything about the house. A date of 1820 on the front porch may refer to the date the Globe Tavern (which burned about 1873) was built. It’s very confusing. I hope to find out more soon, Fred.

    House served as the first telephone office for Fort Gaines.

    • Do you know if the date of 1820 on the house is the date of the house or of the Globe, which burned down? That sign is a bit confusing. And I can’t locate the walking tour brochure of Fort Gaines that was once online.
