Vernacular Greek Revival Cottage, Shell Bluff

Though this great little house has a slightly Victorian appearance, I believe its origins are earlier, perhaps as a vernacular Greek Revival.

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.

Boxwood, 1846, Cuthbert

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.

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.
