This grand Victorian was built by Simeon Brinson (1847-1918), founder of the town that bears his name. In the 1870s, Simeon bought large tracts of land in the area and surveyed the area for a town in 1889, after the coming of the railroad. He served as a postmaster in the town’s early days and after it was incorporated in 1907 was its first mayor. The family owned the only bank in the town, as well as a cotton warehouse.

Built by Sam Hinds, this house features very unique windows. They were intended for use in an Episcopal church that was destroyed by a hurricane before the windows could be installed. The portico is leaning a bit, but the house and grounds are beautifully maintained.

Along with this innovative cross-gable gambrel-roofed house, lumberman Charles H. Caldwell built this carriage house, later used as a garage. It was among the most modern properties in Bainbridge at the time of its construction. The present owners have recently repainted the home.
