Built as a wood frame house for John West Harris, this grand home was remodeled to its present appearance by H. Lewis Hill in 1928. The rooms feature Adam mantels and decorative molded ceilings. The original carriage steps remain in front of the house.
I am most grateful to Karan Pittman for her assistance in identifying this and the remaining houses in Cuthbert. It means a lot to me when people share their time and resources. While I have access to lots of information, I occasionally run into snags, and Cuthbert has been quite confusing, to say the least. The National Register form for the Cuthbert Historic District is missing its map and online resources are nearly non-existent. This is a real shame, as Cuthbert is one of the most architecturally interesting cities in Georgia. The local government would do well to promote this through a self-guided walking tour.
