Also known as the Groover-Akins House, this was likely built as a Plantation Plain in the 1850s and later modified. Joe Akins was a later owner of the house. Thanks to Kenneth Dixon for the identification.

Bledsoe House, Georgetown

I hope to identify the Greek Revivals in Georgetown. There is very little information to be found on the community’s history online.

Central Hallway House, Cuthbert

Though it was later modified to a Folk Victorian appearance, I believe this house has antebellum origins. I hope to learn more.

Bailey-White House, 1855, Cuthbert

This Greek Revival cottage was built in 1855 by Marcellus Douglass and given to his sister, Narcissa Weakly Douglass, who married Francis David Bailey and then Judge Bedford Solomon Worrill. In the 1860s, she conducted a private school in this house. The original doors were of the “Cross and bible” design.

Worrill-Settles House, Circa 1840s, Cuthbert

The original Gay House [circa 1840s] located on this property burned in 1936 and the W. C. Worrill house located next door was divided into two separate houses, from which this section originated. The carriage steps remain.

Harris-Bullock House, 1846 & 1928, Cuthbert

Built as a wood frame house for John West Harris, this grand home was remodeled to its present appearance by H. Lewis Hill in 1928. The rooms feature Adam mantels and decorative molded ceilings. The original carriage steps remain in front of the house.

I am most grateful to Karan Pittman for her assistance in identifying this and the remaining houses in Cuthbert. It means a lot to me when people share their time and resources. While I have access to lots of information, I occasionally run into snags, and Cuthbert has been quite confusing, to say the least. The National Register form for the Cuthbert Historic District is missing its map and online resources are nearly non-existent. This is a real shame, as Cuthbert is one of the most architecturally interesting cities in Georgia. The local government would do well to promote this through a self-guided walking tour.
