Hinds-Cooper House, 1873, Bainbridge

Built by Sam Hinds, this house features very unique windows. They were intended for use in an Episcopal church that was destroyed by a hurricane before the windows could be installed. The portico is leaning a bit, but the house and grounds are beautifully maintained.

Along with this innovative cross-gable gambrel-roofed house, lumberman Charles H. Caldwell built this carriage house, later used as a garage. It was among the most modern properties in Bainbridge at the time of its construction. The present owners have recently repainted the home.

Woodhull-Willis-Miller House, 1896, Bainbridge

M. V. Woodhull of Monroe, New York, built this as a winter home. Originally a Queen Anne, it was extensively remodeled in the 1940s to its present Colonial appearance.

Jan Godwin writes: I remember [this] as the home of “old” Dr. L.W. Willis, Sr., and his wife, Eugenia “Genie.” It was where they raised their two children, Mary Eugenia Willis Rollins and Dr. L.W. Willis (Bo), Jr., who were both born in the 1920’s. Old Dr. Willis practiced family medicine in Bainbridge for over 50 years until his death in 1972, at a time when only a few doctors were in Bainbridge. The two Willis doctors probably delivered over 75% of the babies born in Decatur County from the 1920’s to about 1980. The house was inherited by Dr. Willis’ daughter, Mary Eugenia Rollins, and his granddaughter…lives there now.
