Cobb House, 1850s, Americus

The central portion of this house, thought to date to around 1850, was originally located in the nearby town of Oglethorpe. A terrible epidemic there in 1862 left as many as 100 dwellings uninhabited and the house was purchased by Colonel Charles J. Malone and moved to Americus. Captain John A. Cobb, a Georgia legislator, bought it in 1883 and it remained in his family for well over a century.

The Mediterranean Revival house in the foreground was designed by Georgia architect C. F. Lockwood for wholesale grocer Carr S. Glover. The home of Speaker Charles F. Crisp in the background highlights the wide variety of architectural styles on view in Americus. Its large historic district (commercial and residential) is among the most extensive for any town of its size in Georgia and cannot be missed! Let’s help put this wonderful community on the map for historic travelers and architecture tourists. Angie Singletary and Steve Short at Americus-Sumter Tourism were most helpful in pinning down the identities of some of these great homes and if you’re visiting, be sure to stop their office at 101 West Lamar Street for a map and guide . They’re both very enthusiastic about Americus and do a great job.
