Barney Averitt House, 1890, Statesboro

Built by Barney Averitt using lumber from his sawmill, this home features a variety of pine, oak, and maple floors. The brick was likely added in the early 20th century, when it was remodeled to its present Colonial Revival appearance. It’s now owned by Helen Cannon and home to Georgia’s Bed & Breakfast, a popular Statesboro inn.

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.
