Greek Revival Farmhouse, Jefferson County

This delightful home is unusual in its high style and isolation, likely unique in this section of Georgia. To call it a farmhouse almost seems to minimize its grandeur though its setting among hundreds of acres of open fields confirms that purpose. I don’t believe it dates to the usual era associated with the Greek Revival but I hope to learn more about it.

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.
