Cuthbert, Georgia


A few weeks ago we drove through Cuthbert coming back from Eufaula. It's usually dark when we pass through so we drive really slowly and squint to catch little glimpses of the beautiful homes.


 This time we made it through right before the sun set so we were able to take a little tour.


The homes in Cuthbert are just gorgeous! The whole time we kept saying, "what do these people do!" Cuthbert is such a little town and there aren't many places to work so it really makes you wonder what they do for a living.  Chances are the homes have been in the family for generations and with all of the surrounding farm land, I would assume that some of them farm and just live in town.


I love a house with a porte-cochère.  There is also beautiful historic college, Andrew College, right in the middle of town.


During the Civil War, Andrew College suspended classes for three years and operated as a hospital.  There are only about 350 students that attend the college- such a hard number to grasp considering my high school graduation class had about 450 and my college had 60,000.


There are so many great little towns in Georgia.  Thomasville and Senoia are up at the top of the list for me- if you ever have a chance to pass through either of them, you should.

  1. I'm so glad I'm not the only who wanders past these houses thinking "What DO they do??" I'm equally sure they are generational homes more often than not but still, absolutely amazing.

  5. Cuthbert is a great town! They also have (or used to have) an amazing tea house there that does traditional southern teas! Definitely worth exploring on the way to or from Eufaula!

  8. I am from Northwest GA so we used to pass through this area every year on the way to the beach... I absolutely ADORE the area and have always said that I want to retire there. It is just so beautiful! Love your pictures.

  9. AWW the house with the porte-cochère totally reminds me of the house my Dad grew up in in Coral Gables. I wish I could buy that house back... maybe if I win the lottery?

    And I agree, these must be generational houses. I think I remember a place called Julianna's there for tea? It used to be part of the Magnolia & Ivy tea room chain before that, I believe. (this is coming second hand from my Mother...)

  14. I live in Thomasville, GA. It is a beautiful plantation town and we love living here! My husband is a big fan of greek revival plantation houses and has actually been inside the Muse house (the 3rd one) in Cuthbert, GA. His dream is to move it to Thomasville...haha! I love that you posted some south GA pictures!
