A portion of this house is said to date to the 1700s, though the present form dates to its 1849 purchase by Young L. G. Harris (founder and namesake of Young Harris College). The house was originally built in the Gothic Revival style but additions in 1900 gave it a more Victorian appearance.

This has been home to the Alpha Delta Pi sorority since 1939. It was built by Dr. James E. Hamilton before the Civil War but the ornamental ironwork, ordered from England and delayed by Union rail blockades, was  not installed until after the war ended.

Delta Gamma House, Athens

Though out of place among the antebellum and Victorian mansions of Milledge Avenue, this is nonetheless an interesting structure. I’m not sure of the style but would call it Postmodern Dutch, for lack of a better term.
