Clary-Whaley House, Circa 1869, Jesup

Willis Clary established what would become Jesup at Station Number 6 on the Atlantic & Gulf Railroad line in early 1869. He paid to have the town surveyed and built this house on City Lot #1, presumably around the time the survey was done. Clary would serve as Jesup’s first mayor. As he and wife Lucinda Hall Lee had no children of their own, his stepdaughter, Georgia Lee Whaley, eventually inherited the home.

It appears to have originated as a simple central hallway structure. Expanded over the years, it’s presently used as an office.

Folk Victorian House, Fitzgerald

This is another of Fitzgerald’s T-Plan houses. The style was common in Midwestern states where many of the town’s earliest residents migrated from and varying examples can be found throughout the city.

Victorian House, Fitzgerald

This T-Plan house features the most intricate Victorian detail of any in Fitzgerald. The owners have spent several years restoring it. I’ll update with more information soon.
