Amity School, 1904, Lincoln County

One of Georgia’s nicest extant rural schoolhouses, Amity served the children of the community from 1904-1943, while the second floor has served as the Masonic Lodge. It is still in use today by the Amity Community Club.

Blalock-Wright House, Circa 1792, Lincoln County

Built in 1792 by David Blalock, the house was originally a dogtrot. Rem Remsen acquired the house, which had already been expanded to two stories and used as a stagecoach inn, before 1840. Miss Gladys Wright, a retired Lincoln County teacher, lived here until her death at the age of 103 in 1999. Her grandfather purchased the property in 1852 and it remained in the family for 147 years.

One of few surviving 18th-century houses in Georgia, the historic Blalock-Wright House was saved from destruction by the Mildred Estes Fortson Heritage Foundation in 1999 but still faces an uncertain future.
