Brantley House, Circa 1880, Brewton

Brewton, originally spelled Bruton, was established around 1888 and was the busiest settlement in eastern Laurens County well into the early 20th century. I’ve yet to locate any history of this house, which has been abandoned for many years. It’s likely among the oldest structures remaining in the settlement. Brenda C. Lumley notes that the house is known locally as the Brantley House.

William Brantley writes: I am the grandson of the builder/owner of this house in Brewton, Georgia. It was completed around 1880. The owner was Freeman Hill Brantley.

    I don’t know much history of this house but I live across the street. It was built in the 1890’s I think and in Brewton it is referred to as the Brantley house.
