Godfrey House, Circa 1870, Ludowici

I am unsure of the early history of this house, built circa 1870, but it is best remembered today as the home of the late Jake Godfrey, who served for a time as the mayor of Ludowici. It predates the establishment of the town by at least 30 years and was built when the community was known as Johnston Station.

    A bit of irony. Obviously not a porte cochere. Carports have ungly-fied many a historic house.

    I used to live in Ludowici. I knew a family that lived there about 15-20 years ago. I’ve often wondered what it looks like on the inside. Such history is so interesting and glad to see it still standing.

    Unusual thing about this house is that it DOES NOT HAVE a Ludowici tile roof.
