The commercial heart of Metter, Broad Street is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The largest building in this image, on the right, is the Metter Lodge #435, built in 1916. A nice tree-lined park serves as a centerpiece of the area, offering much-needed shade in the summer months.

Though I’d passed through Metter several times before, I had never really taken the time to explore it’s residential neighborhoods until yesterday. I was very impressed with not only the south side of Broad Street, known for several blocks on Kennedy, Rountree, Lewis, and Leroy Streets as the South Metter Historic District, but with houses on the north side of Broad Street, as well. Metter is a beautiful small town, filled with well-maintained examples of late-nineteenth and early-twentieth century architecture.  This charming home might well be my favorite.
