Rossiter-Little House

Considered the oldest house in Sparta, the Rossiter-Little House was constructed c. 1797 by Dr. Timothy Rossiter on the town’s highest spot.  The two front wings were added before the Civil War. The Rossiter-Little House was documented by the Historic American Building Survey in the 1930s, available here: HABS

Original materials include fireplace mantels, heart pine floors and interior walls of hand cut boards.  The two-story house has a kitchen, eight main rooms and two bathrooms.  

This house has been rehabilitated and is in excellent condition.  Some minor upgrades may be required. See more photos >>

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.
