April in Washington, GA & Old Houses

It's April and time for a"pilgrimage" to Washington, Ga.  For years, we have visited this sweet little town outside of Athens, GA.  To be honest, we love to have lunch on the 1st Saturday in April at the First United Methodist Church.  There is always a Tour of Homes.  Here are a few pictures of homes around town not on the tour and I'll post a few on the tour at the end. 

This house has a beautiful side porch in the back.  Very ornate .....

Next are three homes that were on the tour.  I was so overwhelmed I forgot to take pictures of the others.

The 1894 Inn

Fireplace mantel in living room in 1894 Inn

 1886 Granade Home

1827 Wisteria Hall

And here are a few interior photos of Wisteria Hall.

Ballroom that runs across the middle of the house.

     Porch off the ballroom and next to the kitchen.

Other side of the porch. (Yes, that is me in the mirror talking.)

Men's parlor or study.

More children's bedrooms ...

Wisteria Hall is named after all the Wisteria growing on the trees in the front and back yard.

We love April in the South.  It was a wonderful day.  Thank you for joining us on our trip!



  1. Oh my goodness.... all the homes were just beautiful.. I cannot imagine how the interiors were..the exterior was just gorgeus!!!! Thanks for sharing.. Blessings!

  2. Good Morning Lottie,

    Spring in the South is indeed lovely! My favorite house it the little green one. I wish I could see inside that one.You make me want to move there and live in a sweet house such as this.

    My second favorite is the big brick house with the tall white pillars.

    It must be fun to see inside these home - love the photos.

    :) Hope

  3. Oh Lottie, I love them ALL! Thanks so much for sharing them with us.

  4. I love visiting the south for all the great architecture! Wisteria Hall is one that I would love to take home for myself!

  5. I don't know how I missed this post,Lottie, but I do love all these homes. I went on a christmas tour of homes a couple years ago in Madison,Ga. There are some beautiful homes there also.

  6. I like all these homes, but the pink one is my favorite!
