Coleman House, Jefferson County

This delightful home is unusual in its high style and isolation, likely unique in this section of Georgia. To call it a farmhouse almost seems to minimize its grandeur though its setting among hundreds of acres of open fields confirms that purpose. Buddy Moore notes: This house was the home of my 4th Great Grandfather, E. Lindsey Coleman (1811-1872). Bill Paul adds: My grandfather’s home…when I was a youngster the front yard was surrounded with a white picket fence and gardens.

Wilkins House, Circa 1900, Waynesboro

This home is as difficult to photograph as its architectural style is to define. It has Queen Anne influences but is much more Eclectic than Victorian. Built for William Archibald Wilkins, who was a Confederate major and  mayor of Waynesboro, it hosted President William Howard Taft during a visit to the city in 1910.

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].
