Sparta, Ga.

sometimes the job requires a little hands on work. This house in Sparta was sold just this summer out of the Georgia Trust’s Revolving Fund (hence we needed to take down the for sale sign, so i borrowed a screwdriver from my new friend up the street). It’ll be the 4th building in the tiny town of Sparta with a Historic Preservation easement on it which just goes to show what a collection of historic properties Sparta has—so many of these little towns have. After all I guess, this area used to be the heart of Georgia with the port of Augusta on the Savannah River, and the capital of Louisville and later Milledgeville in the same region. Of course the story of these towns is nothing new, they exist everywhere, I guess we just all like the big cities better now.
