Before & After ~ Col. Samuel Rockwell House

Before & After ~ Col. Samuel Rockwell House, Milledgeville, GA.

Designed by architect Joseph Lane and built in 1838 for Colonel Samuel Rockwell, the house is transitional Federal to Greek Revival style.

It was occupied by several owners until 1962 and then remained vacant for some years. Following a fire in the late 1960s, new owners restored the house and lived there for several decades. Vacancy and neglect in recent years left the house again in need of restoration.

In 2019, three young investors restored the house for use as an inn and wedding/event center (RockwellHouseGA.com).

Every house can’t be saved, some genuinely are too far gone to be saved, but many homes are destroyed every year that could have been preserved. Knowing it is possible is often the critical first step toward accomplishing something good.

I wrote “Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners” to help people know what is possible and how to achieve it.

Signed and personalized copies of the award-winning and bestselling 720-page hardcover book are available from the author in our shop, YourHistoricHouse.com/shop/.

Our shop also carries select preservation and restoration titles by other authors. Save on cost and shipping with our multi-book combo packs!
