S. E. Groover House, 1850s, Bulloch County

Also known as the Groover-Akins House, this was likely built as a Plantation Plain in the 1850s and later modified. Joe Akins was a later owner of the house. Thanks to Kenneth Dixon for the identification.

    Hi Edwin,

    This home is amazing. We’re considering moving to Bulloch Co., and would love to save a historic home. Could you give us any additional information? Would the family consider selling? My email address is sbrowningmullis@gmail.com.

    Thanks,
    Shannon

    This home was purchased by my grandfather in 1908 when he purchased 1,200 acres from the Groover family. His youngest son, Josiah Brinson Akins,”Joe” lived there until his death in 1987. His widow continued there until she moved into a mobile home next door. The house is now vacant.
