Stewart County Courthouse, 1923, Lumpkin

T. F. Lockwood, Jr.’s design for the fifth courthouse to be built in Stewart County, is one of his nicest designs, in my opinion.

The cornucopias on the pediment and the sunflower medallions on the frieze are artistic decorations likely unique among Georgia courthouses.

Old Lumpkin High School

The old Lumpkin High School stands on the site of the old Masonic Female Academy, which was built in 1852. After it burned in 1880, a coeducational school was built here. This structure, however, is of early 20th-century construction.

This venerable structure, along with an old kitchen, are located in the back yard of the Bedingfield Inn. Thanks to Carly Elisabeth Kleinschmit for the identification. Cornelius Lynch was her great-great-great-great grandfather.

I’ve been told this house dates to circa 1836, but feel it may be a bit later, perhaps late 1840s. I hope to learn more about it.
