    Hello, thank you for posting pictures of Eastman Ga. This Wynne/Stuckey home was and could be a beautiful estate. Although, Mr W.S. Stuckey, Sr home is at the corner of 5th and Oak. I don’t recall ever hearing that Sr living in the above listing. His son did. W.S. Stuckey, Jr (Billy) lived here until he moved to Washington as a Congressman. As stated by Andy Hall it is still in the Stuckey family. Billy had a daughter that lived there, but she passed a few years ago. And I don’t think anyone since then has lived in this beautiful home. Please continue to show us these places in Georgia before they are gone. Thank you.

    Sure. The house is in sad shape these days.

      Andy Hall, have you viewed the brick wall in downtown Eastman with advertisements including one for Mather Wynne. It is across the street from the old Citizens Bank Building on East Main St. that was uncovered after an adjoining building burned down. I did some research on Mr Wynne when I first discovered it. Could you or Brian Brown share more on this interesting story. I don’t know if a picture of the mural on the wall could be used. Thank you!

        Hi Wanda, this is the first I’ve heard of this. I live in Arizona but will probably be back there in a few months and can’t wait to see it. Can you please send a photo? (Email j.andyhall@gmail.com) Great Uncle Mather was a prominent businessman. He and Aunt Nannie were also very active in the Methodist Church in Eastman. They’re important to me because they raised my grandmother and her three sisters after their mother died when they were very young.

    I believe it’s owned by a Stuckey descendant; however, it was built by Mather Wynne and his wife Nancy Almeda McRae, my 2nd great-aunt. Aunt Nannie and Uncle Mather were Telfair County natives, married in 1882.
