Kyte House

Built in 1914 by the Bogle family, the Kyte House was once known as "one of the handsomest homes in Forsyth." This two-story late Victorian-era house features a central hallway, large centered hipped roof dormer with fixed 4/1 windows, slightly overhanging boxed eaves, and tall corbelled brick chimneys.

This property was saved due to a generous gift from the Wal-Mart Corporation and a Wal-Mart retail store is located directly behind it.  With its close proximity to both I-75 and downtown Forsyth, this property holds great potential.  The property is zoned for commercial or residential use.  This house will need rehabilitation work and all systems will need to be upgraded.

The house may be eligible for several financial incentives, including an 8 1/2 year tax abatement and state and federal tax credits for substantial rehabilitation.

About The Georgia Trust Revolving Fund program

The Georgia Trust is a non-profit statewide preservation organization, part of a network of local, state and national organizations dedicated to the preservation of significant historic resources. 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.

A buyer of a Revolving Fund property must sign a Reserved Conservation Easement and Preservation Agreement. The easement, which ensures the historic integrity of the property is retained, is attached to the deed in perpetuity and is monitored by The Georgia Trust. The preservation agreement specifies that all work done to the property must follow the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for Rehabilitation, and provides a rehabilitation schedule that indicates all work will be completed in a reasonable amount of time.
