One of the oldest surviving homes in Gwinnett County, this house was built in the 1850s. The house was originally two rooms wide and one room deep. This style is referred to as an I-house. The house is unique because of the beautiful, hand painted folk art found on the exterior and interior, making it one of the only surviving examples of exterior painted decorations in the state of Georgia and perhaps the South. The unknown artist was a traveling German painter who created the artwork in exchange for room and board. The house was located on property owned by Sue and Gerald Williams and moved from its original site six miles away.
