Nesmith House, 1920, Nevils

This eclectic Craftsman features spacious porches on both floors. It’s one of the most impressive houses in town. Jimmie Lou Smith writes: My grandfather, John Servant NeSmith had this house built when he moved his family to Nevils. His former residence was the colonial house located on Hwy. 46 and J. S. NeSmith road in Bulloch County. He also built the right portion of the two-story brick building (located in the middle of Nevils) and another two-story house next door to his home for a doctor to move there. Dr. Stapleton, who later moved to Statesboro, lived in that house for a period of time. It was torn down. It saddened me to see them destroy it for it was an impressive house. After my grandfather died my family moved to the above house to take care of my grandmother and bought the house at her death. I have very fond memories growing up in that house. It was very hard for me to sell it.
