Historic Georgia Home Relocated for Restoration

I drove past this home many times and mistook it for a former school house before my friend Brian Brown of Vanishing South Georgia was able to identify it corrrectly for me.

Built around 1904, the mayor of Alapaha lived in this home, which was formerly situated within the city limits. It sat empty there for many years before a relative of the original family purchased it.

They relocated the home to this beautiful location a few miles outside of town with plans of restoring her. I look forward to the day I ride by and find a family outside enjoying the porch.
