The house has an interesting history, especially the part where it was moved some 70 miles to Stone Mountain in 1985, left alone for 20 years, then moved back. Most of the furnishings are not original and the oil paintings are photo reproductions.

Don't miss this antebellum home that exhales the breath of Georgians who shaped their fine state. Life, death, love, children, family, honor, law and war have happened between these walls.

This was has been dismantled and moved TWICE. Beautiful home of the period with a LOT of history. The flooring, the period pieces, the history -- worth the trip. So glad house was brought back to Athens and restored as a public historic house museum.

A historic house museum that shows how life was back in 1844. Compared to the present time how life was shared inside a house.
