I love drawing historic properties, and this Federal Style home on Lincoln Street is no exception.  Built in 1799 for William Barnard, it must have a million stories to tell.   In 1812, the house became the first Methodist parsonage in Savannah.  It also served as a Presbyterian manse as recently as the 1970’s.

I’m a little sad that the iron gate designed by Ivan Bailey didn’t make the drawing…

I must say I’ve been blessed with some really unique houses to draw this Holiday Season…but there is just something about old Savannah architecture that intrigues me. The iron work, the railings, the hidden courtyards, all of course nestled under the majestic live oaks and magnolias. This house on Charlton St. really sparks the creative bug in me. If walls could talk, I imagine this house would have quite a story to tell.
