Johnson House

The Johnson House (c. 1856) is located in the heart of Lithonia, Georgia and remained in the Johnson family, who owned the mercantile store next door, for generations. The Greek Revival house features fluted columns on a full two story veranda, a central hall staircase, hardwood floors and original fireplace mantels. Other highlights include a screened side porch, hidden passageway between rooms, and a handicap accessible bath on the main floor. This 3,970 sq. ft. house with 4 bedrooms and 2 baths is in fair condition, but will need upgrades to the kitchen and bath, as well as some plaster repair.

The property also includes a detached 3-car garage with unfinished space above, as well as a 250 sq. ft. workshop space. The beautiful gardens and mature landscaping include historic plantings and landscape features.


About Lithonia

Lithonia, Georgia was established in 1856. It is known for its local granite quarries. In fact, Lithonia's unique name comes from the Greek lithos (meaning stone) and onia (meaning place). The town is the northern starting point for the Arabia Mountain National Heritage Area, which features over 30 miles of paved paths connecting state parks, historic sites and nature preserves.


About The Georgia Trust Revolving Fund program

The Georgia Trust is a nonprofit statewide preservation organization. The Revolving Fund Program was established to provide effective alternatives to demolition or neglect of architecturally and historically significant properties by promoting their rehabilitation and monitoring their preservation in perpetuity.

All properties sold through this program have conservation easements in place to ensure the historic integrity of the property is retained. Additionally, buyers are required to sign a Rehabilitation Agreement and all work done to the property must abide by the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for Rehabilitation. Copies of these documents will be provided by The Georgia Trust for review.
