Commercial Block, Hogansville

It appears this building will soon be demolished. Perhaps it’s being repaired, instead.

Nutwood, 1833, LaGrange

Representative of the transformation from Federal and Plantation Plain styles to the more formal Greek Revival, Nutwood is one of six extant homes designed and built by Collin (sometimes spelled Cullin or Cullen) Rogers (1791-1845) and his brother Henry. Just as Daniel Pratt’s houses are emblematic of Milledgeville, Rogers’s designs are icons of LaGrange. Nutwood is considered the most accomplished of his works. It should be noted that Rogers and his brother utilized a large number of enslaved people with great skills in carpentry to build their commissions.

Joel D. Newsom (1789-1864) was the first owner of the property and legend states that the plantation house derived its name from the fact that the first pecan tree grown in Troup County was planted here. Newsom served as judge of the Troup County Inferior Court from 1831-36. In 1937, it was purchased by Mr. & Mrs. Arthur E. Mallory who owned it until the 1970s.

Folk Victorian House, Circa 1890, Mountville

I had a nice talk with the son of this home’s owner, whom he noted had lived in Mountville all her life and grew up in the Queen Anne pictured in the previous post.

Mountville Presbyterian Church, 1907, Troup County

Mountville Presbyterian was organized in 1887. The church was built in 1907. After its congregation dwindled it was empty for a time until being restored as a home. The owners did an excellent job maintaining the exterior appearance. The belfry was originally of open construction but was enclosed during renovation; small roofs were added to both steeples, as well.
