Wisteria Hall, Circa 1909, Waynesboro

Known locally as Wisteria Hall for the design of a stained glass panel on the stairway landing featuring wisteria and two birds in flight, this magnificent Neoclassical Revival landmark was built for Waynesboro merchant Enon E. Chance. [The date of 1909 comes from the National Register of Historic Places nomination form; a sign in front of the house dates it to 1900. I’m not sure why there is a discrepancy, though this is a common issue with historic homes].

Grovania, Georgia

Besides Ellis Grocery, the old Georgia Southern & Florida Railroad freight depot is the last public landmark in Grovania. The graffiti on the passing train car seems to sum up how often you might encounter a scene like this today.

Eclectic House, Adrian

Though the layout is Georgian Cottage, this house has Victorian elements, as well. Whatever the form, it’s one of my favorite houses in Adrian.

Pierce County Jail, 1894, Blackshear

This served as the county jail until 1926, when another facility was constructed near the courthouse. This facility served as the city jail until 1976, as well as police headquarters. It has been empty for many years and will hopefully be restored in the near future.

A small but active group of Episcopalians formed this congregation in the 1890s and built this church, their first and only permanent home, in 1898.
