Highly in-tact National Register-listed1824 Federal house built for Revolutionary War soldier Colonel John Rutherford by architect Daniel Pratt, emblematic of the Milledgeville Federal. Well maintained with beautiful original character defining features throughout. 3440 square feet, 4 beds, 2 baths, 0.9 acres. The original house was a two-over-two with two shed rooms and a two-story portico with columns. In 1859, the house was relocated across from then-Oglethorpe University by Professor Robert Calendar Smith leaving behind the portico, columns and basement. Full length country style porches were added to the front and back of the house. All the wonderful decorative trim is retained in its original condition as well as lovely mantles in the downstairs rooms and simple mantles and full wainscotting in the two original upstairs bedrooms. Later, an additional bedroom was added upstairs and the back porch was sectioned off to make room for a bathroom and pantry leading into the kitchen, formerly a separate building. The fully fenced yard and mature landscaping gives the house a very private feeling.
