Craftsman House, 1917, Rutledge

Though it doesn’t have the appearance of the vastly popular bungalow style typically associated with Craftsman architecture, this house is decidedly Craftsman.

The gabled-ell cottage (above) and the saddlebag cottage (below) are two representative examples of vernacular architecture in the Pea Ridge community.

Moses Chapel AME Church, 1877, Rutledge

I’m not sure when Moses Chapel was established but like most African-American churches in Reconstruction-era Georgia the congregation likely counted many recently emancipated slaves among its members. The church, built in 1877, is a real treasure of the vernacular Gothic style common in the late 19th and early 20th century. It is the most notable landmark of the historic African-American neighborhood known as Pea Ridge.

Ponder Place, Circa 1903, Rutledge

This eclectic house has elements of the Queen Anne style, with columns reminiscent of the Neoclassical Revival popular in the early 20th century. I’m unsure if the house was built this way or if the portico is a later addition. It’s quite the rambling house.

Colonial Revival House, Circa 1910, Rutledge

A recent restoration of this house has slightly altered the appearance of the front gable but has in no way detracted from its architectural integrity, in my opinion.

Zachry-Kingston House, Circa 1830, Morgan County

This early Plantation Plain with Federal details was restored circa 1985. Windows, weatherboarding, chimneys, and the front portico were all replaced with historic materials. Two outbuildings were also added to the property at the time of the restoration.

The well-maintained home is located near the Oconee River near the community of Buckhead.
