    The house pictured above is our current residence since 2004. It is know to us as the Little house named after Marion Little who was a life-long teacher in Louisville, Georgia. As the story goes… the houjse was built in 1901. Marion’s father was a forest plantion owner who had four houses built in the city for his wife and three relations. The archect of our house was Willis F. Denny and I suspect that he was the asrchect of the other three houses. The house is a Greek Revival style with a shotgun hallway measuring 70 feet from front to rear. The 6 main rooms strattle the hallway and are 16×16 with 11 foot ceilings. The entrance to the parlor are through large pocket doors. A borded attic was included, although designed for, a staircase was not instlled at the time of construction. We instlled a matching staircase and upstairs foyer uring our residence. our mission is to keep this structural history of Georgia alive by continuing to maintain the “Little House”.
