Greenville, the county seat of Meriwether County, Georgia, was founded in 1828. As a result, there are still a handful of historic houses standing. Historic homes on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Burwell O. Hill House. Built in 1893. Classic Revival Style architecture.

I really enjoy stately homes. They tell a story older than living people. Much less, the overall quality of details and workmanship. Back when symmetry was of thought in architecture.

The Hiram Warner Hill House. Built in 1897. Queen Anne Style architecture.

Many old homes are located on a residential stretch on LaGrange Street, leading to or away from the Meriwether County Courthouse, on the west side. Not a difficult place to find at all considering the road is beside town. You cannot miss the courthouse. A very prominent figure centered in the middle of Greenville’s business district.
