331 College Street

This house is a restrained example of the bracketed, Italian-style villa that was popular in early Victorian times. It is one of very few early houses on College Street that has not undergone architectural alteration. The house has a sweeping verandah – a feature that well-served Southern homes as an outdoor living room. Records show that the massive front door was hand-carved in New England and shipped to Macon by steamer.

331 College Street is stop 14 on the Lights on Macon tour.
