Central Hallway House, Jewell

The Victorian porch posts and balustrade are later additions to the house, which appears to be of antebellum construction.

Reynolds House, Mayfield

One historic resource survey dates this Plantation Plain/I-House to circa 1860, but I believe it was built earlier than that. Other than the name of the first owner, I have been unsuccessful at locating more history.

This saddlebag house is barely hanging on. It’s located on the Warren County side of the Ogeechee River, near historic Mayfield.

Jacob Burkhalter House, Circa 1778, Warrenton

Though it has been moved from its original location, the home of Revolutionary War veteran Jacob Burkhalter is the oldest in Warrenton. In March 1825 the Marquis de Lafayette stayed at the Burkhalter House while traveling by stagecoach from Augusta to Milledgeville on the Southern leg of his American tour. Dan Muller, the present owner, has done a lot of sensitive restoration and stabilization work on the house.

Stagecoach Inn, 1780s, Warrenton

This historic stagecoach inn would have seen lots of business after it was built on the old Milledgeville-Augusta route in the 1780s. I’ve found very little history for such an important survivor, and what I have found seems apocryphal, but as always will update when I learn more. It has been stabilized and restored by its present owners and is now known as the Stagecoach House Events Venue.

Reese, Georgia

This historic farmhouse and the adjacent general store/commissary are about all that’s left of the Reese community. Since 1971, the property has been known as the Strother Farm.
