Colonel T. L. Huston House, 1927, Butler Island

I’ve shared photos of this favorite landmark in the past, but recently located some interior views. The property has changed hands several times but I believe it’s now owned by the Department of Natural Resources or McIntosh County. Hopefully, they will stabilize this important piece of Georgia history and utilize it as an event space in the future. The interior of the house is no longer publicly accessible.

    Beautiful pics Brian. Do you know if the wood used on the interior is cypress? I am familiar with many older houses in the Apalachicola FL area and in a certain era even the modest houses featured beautiful cypress for interior walls, paneling and trim. It is a beautiful feature and looks a lot like the interiors in your post!
