619 College Street

This large residence was built by Wallace E. McCaw, whose company developed a vegetable shortening which came to be known as Crisco. Alexander Blair, a member of a well-known family of Macon architects, supplied the original plans and those for a later addition at the left rear. Later the property was purchased by Jordan Massee, president of the Bibb Brick Company, who also built the Massee Apartments on College Street. Originally the house featured balustrades on the widow’s walk and on the porch roof and decking. Note the fine stonework and leaded glass windows.
