Tarver-Webster-Wickersham House, Circa 1820, Wasington

Also known as the Tarver-Maynard House, this has most recently served as a bed and breakfast inn. It was once a dormitory for a Female Seminary and housed some of the students at Washington Academy, including future Confederate vice president and Georgia governor Alexander Hamilton Stephens.
