First Presbyterian Church, 1884, Waynesboro

Dating to the colonial era, the First Presbyterian Church of Waynesboro was founded in 1760 with the establishment of a church on Briar Creek (Episcopalian) and another on Walnut Branch.  The present church grew out of the union of these two churches in 1812. The present structure, the third to serve the congregation on this site, was dedicated in 1884.

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].

Simmons-Tucker-Marsh House, 1915, Statesboro

Architecturally, this Spanish Colonial Revival is one of the most  impressive houses in Statesboro.  As is the case with several structures in the city’s historic districts, there is a bit of conflict regarding the date of construction; the National Register nomination dates it to 1915 while real estate archives put it at 1917. I generally defer to the National Register until I learn otherwise.
