What people are saying:

The Meadow Garden is located on the west side of downtown Augusta, separated from the Augusta Historic Trail in Augusta, just east of the Sutherland Plant. This is a 1-1/2 story wood frame structure set in a high brick basement. It was originally built in the stage, originally three bays wide, but now it has six or three gable skylights and two chimneys protruding from the roof gable. The entire front part of a shed roof porch extends out and is supported by elongated Doric columns. The facades are arranged irregularly, with two doors and four windows. [2] The oldest part of the house, with the three bays on the right, was built in 1791. On the left, three bays were added sometime after 1800, and it may also be a front porch added in the future. Although the property was never owned by him, it was a signer of the United States Declaration of Independence from the home of George Walton where he died in 1804 in 1791. As a well-trained lawyer, he served as the Continental Congress (1776-1781) and the Georgian militia, during his service he was captured by the British in 1778 during the capture of Savannah. Exchange and release, he was immediately elected governor of Georgia, he was held from November 1779 to January 1780, he also served as the office of the chief judge of the state, and in the second term as governor from 1789 to 1780. He died in Mountain College, his country house, in 1804[2] the house passed out of the Walton family in 1812, the daughter of the American Revolution who is now owned and worked by the local chapter museum.
