Roberts-Beall House, Circa 1845, Sparta

Located on Monument Square across from the courthouse, this antebellum survivor is stable but in dire need of further restoration. It’s one of my many favorites in Sparta, a town worth the drive from anywhere in Georgia. I’ve met some really nice folks here who are proud to talk about their rich history. The town was founded in 1795 by Major Charles Abercrombie of North Carolina, a veteran of the American Revolution.
