Bentley House, Circa 1860, Quitman

Owner Tim Reisenwitz writes: Thank you for posting The Bentley House (c. 1860). I am currently restoring this antebellum and had an architectural historian visit and confirm the time of construction and also that the architect was most likely John Wind (1819-1863). John Wind was most famous for spectacular plantation homes but also designed town cottages such as this one, particularly with the U-shaped configuration. He also designed many area public buildings.

    .. wasn’t that late for John Wind? If John Hand in Thomasville said it probably was JW, then I would believe it, anyone else has no idea what they are talking about!

    The c. 1880 label is most likely from the Brooks County Museum and Cultural Center. I have asked them twice to make the correction in their records.
