ADAMS-YOUNG-RIVERS HOUSE LANDS NEW OWNER, NEW ROLE IN COMMUNITY

The Adams-Young-Rivers House in Eatonton
welcomed a new owner in March 2004.

Originally built with a central hall and four main rooms,
the 1852 home has since received many additions.

In March 2004, the Adams-Young-Rivers House welcomed a new owner, whose plans to restore the structure and reintroduce it as a vibrant part of the local community have progressed nicely since the purchase.

Built in 1852 by Robert Adams, an Eatonton doctor, the Greek Revival cottage features original hardwood floors, windows and doors, 14-foot ceilings, plaster cornices and six fireplaces.

Martha Mock, a Monticello interior designer specializing in residential renovation, plans to use the one-story house as her office as well as rent the property for weddings and other special events. Since March 2004, the house has received a new roof, new coat of paint and the medallioned 14’9” ceiling has also been restored.

The 2,300-sq.-ft. building was originally constructed with a central hall and four main rooms, but has since passed through several hands and undergone many renovations. While it appears small from the front, the house and its two outbuildings now sit on a one-acre piece of property that extends a full city block.
