Stubbs-Wallerstein-Wells House, 1915, Quitman

The original owners of this home stayed in an Italian villa on their honeymoon, and upon returning to Quitman, hired Neel Reid to build something of that style. The style is quite rare in rural Georgia, and an asymmetrical version such as this one is even rarer. The columns were added to give the house a Neoclassical appearance when it was purchased by Dr. Wallerstein in the early 1960s. The house is presently for sale; perhaps a serious admirer of Neel Reid’s work could buy it and remove the columns. Thanks to Chuck Ramsey, who is the listing agent for the house, for sharing the history.

Gordon Avenue Apartments, 1929, Thomasville

This Tudor Revival apartment complex was designed by architects Sydney S. Daniell and Russell L. Beutell and built in 1929 to meet the immediate housing needs of the growing middle class community of Thomasville.

Each section of the complex has a slightly different design giving a bit a whimsical tone to the whole structure. It’s an early example of this process, commonly used with condominiums and apartments today.
