The oldest residence in Thomaston, Georgia. Known as the Weaver-Dallas house, the first house was a three room pioneer cabin built in the early 1820's. Further additions were made in the 1830's and again in 1840 making the house a one and a half greek revival type with a guest house and a two story smoke house in the rear of the residence. A small doctor's shop was also added and still stands today. This house is privately owned.

Love that doorway, especially the windows above the doors. This isn't too terribly far from Leesburg...I've got a friend who lives there.

MaryAlice on January 30, 2008

Leesburg? I am not familiar with it. Now I'm going to have to look that up on the map. Trust me, if you could see this house in person, you'd be completely in awe. It's just magnificent. This picture doesn't show the half of it's character! I need to go back and take some more. I just love old homes and neat histories! Thanks so much for your interest! MaryAlice

It's just north of Albany. I've got quite a few shots of old houses and barns, but I've got a nasty habit of just taking off, without a map, and not writing locations down. There's just something about old barns and their rusty tin roofs.

MaryAlice on January 31, 2008

Albany .... Yes, I am well aware of where that it. I've been there many a time, usually just passing through. I know what you're saying about old barns. They ALWAYS catch my eye. It's okay that you don't always write down locations. It just gives you a reason to go back and find them again. Take care! MaryAlice

Hello MaryAlice. That is a very interesting history of this house. Such historical old houses are very beautiful. Many greetings, Holger.

MaryAlice on November 1, 2008

Greetings again, Holger!

I couldn't agree with you more about historical houses. I'm so happy that you stopped by to visit this one, and thank you so much for your interest.

Happy Saturday to you!

With kind regards,

Mary Alice

A charming house. Olga

MaryAlice on November 11, 2008

Thank you, Olga!

I need to get a better shot so you can see the house from the side. It is truly amazing.

Thank you for visiting.

Best regards,

All is well, but I have ever so busy with work, Mary Alice. This has curtailed my normal daily involvement with this site somewhat, hence my delays in replying.

Cheers, Tony in NZ

MaryAlice on March 5, 2009

You need not worry about your delays in responding, Dearest Tony!

Look at how long it has taken me.

I'm sorry that life has been busy for you.

Take some time to relax this weekend, and just ENJOY the beauty of it all. =)

Peace, my friend!

And what a full-on week it has been too! Long days, and then too tired or lack of time to spend on here. And I like being on here!

Anyways, here is a rail shot inspired by your rail shots.

Best wishes,

Tony in NZ

MaryAlice on March 9, 2009

Ahhhh, Tony, I understand completely.

I have also been entirely too busy to catch up on here, but I am trying once again! =)

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm on my way over to see your new railroad shot right now! =)

Best regards to the busy one,

Mary Alice

Love at home with history. And at this house, it seems very big.

MaryAlice on March 12, 2011

Greetings, Olga, and thank you so much for enjoying this splendid old home and it's history. I have always admired this home even since I was just a small girl. I'm glad that I could share it with you.

Best wishes to you,

Mary Alice

Hi, Mary Alice. This house looks a lot like the house my 4th grandfather built in Troup County in the 1840s. I am guessing that the history of construction is probably similar. Unfortunately the only place it can be found today is in a history book. You can see a pic at my blog at http://www.dianecox.net/category/wilkinsonstories/neal-k-wilkinson/

MaryAlice on October 6, 2012

Diane, Wow..... How much I have enjoyed your blog. It is lovely. I agree with you that the two houses look so very similar. I had to do a double-take! Isn't that neat? I'm so sorry you aren't able to photograph it today, as I'm sure it would still be just as magnificent. Thank you SO, so much for sharing this bit of history with me. Oh, how I enjoy stuff like this! Wishing you a wonderful weekend ahead,

Mary Alice

MaryAlice on October 4, 2013

Ccobb, thank you so much for writing! I, too, have admired this lovely home since I was just a little girl. It has always been a favorite of mine as well as the darling smoke house and all the other neat out-bulidings. Thank you again for dropping by! It's always wonderful to hear from a local. :)

Best regards,

Mary Alice
