Now renovated and used for county offices, the old courthouse is a focal point of Toccoa’s vibrant downtown. A newer courthouse stands across the street.

Folk Victorian Architecture Abandoned House Toccoa GA Stephens County Photo Copyright Brian Brown Vanishing North Georgia USA 2014

This house likely dates to circa 1884, as the adjacent house, built in that year, is a near twin. It is best known as the Bagwell House, for two maiden schoolteachers who lived here.

Update: This photo was made in 2011. The house was being deconstructed/remodeled in 2013 and may no longer be standing.

Toccoa GA Historic Hotel Albermarle Alexander Apartments Photograph Copyright Brian Brown Vanishing North Georgia USA 2014

Originally built by a Mr. Green of Atlanta, who had Green’s Department Store on Doyle Street in downtown Toccoa, the Hotel Albermarle burned and was rebuilt sometime in the 1950s, retaining some of the original structure. For many years, it was known as the Alexander Apartments. There are presently plans to renovate it to its original state.
