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.

Neoclassical Revival House, Cuthbert

For well over a century a pecan tree planted on this property in 1848 was memorialized as “The Mother of Georgia’s Pecan Industry”. The seed nut was brought from Texas by Mrs. Taylor’s mother. A Colonial style house built for the Taylor family originally stood here, but was replaced by this structure.

Traditionally known as Boxwood, this Cuthbert landmark was built by Judge William Taylor, the first judge of the South Western Circuit of Georgia and later a Superior Court judge. The home was later owned by James B. Bussey. After being subdivided for use as apartments, it was restored in 1959 by U. S. Representative Bryant T. Castellow and his wife Katherine.

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.

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.

Owen-Bowles House, 1936, Cuthbert

This grand Georgian house was designed by Dennis & Dennis for Granby Owen. The facade is of Indiana limestone and the Williamsurg-style bricks were handmade by Bickerstaff of Columbus. In 1957 the house was purchased by Jesse G. Bowles, Jr., a Justice of the Georgia Supreme Court. Mike McCall & I were wandering down Lumpkin Street and taking in its beautiful architecture when we were lucky enough to run into Judy Bowles, who gave us a warm and welcoming tour of the house and grounds. Judy is quite passionate about her home and all the historic architecture of Cuthbert.

The formal parlor is a wonderful space, anchored by an extraordinary mantle.

The stairwell is one of my favorite features of the house.

The landing is bright and inviting.

The arch windows are also great, typical of the work of Dennis & Dennis.

The rear of the house is Judy’s favorite space, where she hosts garden parties and neighborhood get-togethers.

This Tudor Revival home was designed for Dr. and Mrs. Job Caldwell Patterson by the firm of Dennis and Dennis. The 3 fireplaces are made of travertine which was mined near Grier’s Cave, located 7 miles north of Cuthbert. Dr. Patterson was a well-loved local physician who served as President of the Medical Association of Georgia.
