Queen Anne House, Circa 1900, Macon

I’ve been seeing this house overlooking downtown Macon for most of my life, and it has always been in this condition. I hope it’s restored one day.

Fears-Johnson House, Circa 1859, Macon

This Greek Revival cottage is located on the lot adjacent to the Fears-Knight House, and because the two are very similar in design, it is thought that Jessie Fears also built this one. It was purchased by Francis S. Johnson in 1860.

Washington-McCook House, Circa 1851, Macon

Built for James H. R. Washington, an early Macon mayor, this house was relocated from its original College Street location on the property of the Washington Memorial Library in the 1970s. It stands today as a good reminder of the power of community involvement in the preservation of historic architecture.
