While photographing Elberton, I ran across this wonderful house and briefly spoke to the owner, who graciously allowed me and a friend to photograph it. She informed us that it’s the oldest house in Elberton. I just want to thank everyone in the Granite City for being so friendly and welcoming, and I’d like to give a special thanks to Anna King for helping with identifications of many of the local landmarks I photographed. It’s a great city and I’ll definitely be back to photograph what I missed on the last trip. Please take the time to drive around the next time you’re just passing through. You won’t be disappointed.

The Van Duzer family came to Elberton from New York around 1840 and later built a home on what was originally a 20-acre lot. Tax records indicate a structure here as early as 1840; the present structure may be an expansion of that. The Tustin family have also been residents here.
