A little history…?
The Church-Waddel-Brumby House is believed to be the oldest residence in Athens, GA. The House was moved to its current location in 1967 after a group of citizens united to save the House from demolition. The Athens-Clarke Heritage Foundation was formed by these same citizens who had successfully saved the House. Currently, the House is being restored to its 1820-1829 time period when Franklin College (University of Georgia) President, Moses Waddel, lived in the House.
