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.

G. L. Haynes Funeral Home, Warrenton

This is an old African-American funeral home. It’s certainly one of the more unique such places I’ve seen.

Wilkes Memorial Church of God In Christ, Warrenton

This is such a photogenic church with the Holiness Unto the Lord sign emblazoned across the front. I spoke with a very nice gentleman who was either the pastor or a deacon who noted that it was originally home to a white congregation, built in the 1890s or early 1900s, and became Wilkes Memorial in the early 1950s.

Antebellum House, Warrenton

I’ve contacted Warrenton’s Main Street office for assistance in identifying some of its historic houses with no luck so far, but I would be comfortable saying this house is antebellum, and quite early. It’s of a transitional type I’ve encountered in some of Georgia’s oldest counties.  The Victorian porch posts are obviously a later addition.
