A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT Dear Members, This issue marks my last letter to you, which is certainly bittersweet. My term as Chair of the Board and President of Historic Macon Foundation will conclude on May 9, 2013 at our annual meeting. The last 11 months have been so exciting. As we prepare for the transition to a new executive board, I have the opportunity to reflect on the many accomplishments of my volunteer leadership team and our staff over this past year. As a preservationist, the accomplishments that matter most are those that save historic places. Topping my list of favorites is the James Hyde Porter House at 2910 Allen Road. The owners of the 1927 Elliott Dunwody house reluctantly decided on demolition almost one year ago. Historic Macon leapt to action and negotiated a Memorandum of Understanding between the James Hyde Porter Testamentary Trust and Wesleyan College (which was signed in early March) to move the house and restore it to its former glory on Wesleyan’s campus at the Tucker Road entrance. In the last few months, Historic Macon has adopted and begun implementing its new strategic plan, which will serve as our compass over the next three years. Our Board worked for hundreds of hours preparing this document. It was a hands-on opportunity where we were able to set the course for where we will go in the next few years. Part of the plan is to move beyond traditional neighborhoods and into the heart of downtown Macon. In February, it was thrilling to announce that we successfully met the generous match of the Peyton Anderson Foundation and now have more than $500,000 set aside in a revolving fund for construction of owner-occupied lofts in downtown Macon. In early March, Historic Macon Foundation executed a Memorandum of Understanding with Mercer University to save the Craftsman-style brick apartment building at 1268 College St. from demolition. This project will require us to raise about $100,000 in new donations to fund the $550,000 project (the rest can be secured through tax credits and loans). While there are countless ways to get involved, (e.g., volunteering for an event, traveling to Cuba, serving on a committee, making a donation, renewing your membership, attending a fundraiser, donating flea market items) we never lose sight of results. When I renew my membership every year, I think of what a good value it is. My donation, along with that of 500 other members, saved these places. I know that Macon is better for it, and when I drive by the Porter House or 1268 College St., I feel proud of what my administration has accomplished. The wonderful thing about Historic Macon is that as an organization, it continues to evolve to meet the everchanging need of historic preservation. I know that even next year, I’ll feel proud of what we all do as members of the preservation movement. Sincerely,
– Aubrey Newby, Historic Macon Board President 1

Tuesday, May 14: Mike Kitchens Mike is the author of Ghosts of Grandeur: Georgia’s Lost Antebellum Homes and Plantations. This book features stories on 94 historic antebellum homes that were built anywhere from the 1780s to the 1860s. Through this book, and hopefully others to follow, Mike hopes to share some of the enormous stores of information he has developed on the subject of the South’s lost antebellum architecture.
1120 GEORGIA AVENUE By Kristen Hartley, HISTORIC MACON INTERN
Georgia Avenue has been prime real estate in Macon for many years, and in the mid-1800s, it was no different. Mr. Asher Ayers, one of Macon’s prominent citizens, bought the land on which the current home at 1120 Georgia Ave. stands in 1877. Mr. Ayers was a lawyer at the firm of R.K. Hines. While working at the firm, he would undertake public and private accounts, settlements of partnership affairs, receiverships, and confidential business of all kinds. Ayers and other R.K. Hines associates traveled across Middle and Southwest Georgia to help loyal, paying customers. Ayers later became Chief Deputy United States Marshal for the Southern District of Georgia. He served in this role for seven years and was widely known as the champion gunshot of Georgia. Everyone that came into contact with Mr. Ayers seemed to enjoy his presence, and it was once stated that he never had an enemy. Unfortunately, Mr. Ayers lived a short life, and in 1897 he passed away at the age of 37. He left behind a wife, two children, and an aged mother, who occupied the Ayers mansion on the corner of Walnut and Third Streets. Ayers originally bought the lot of land on Georgia Avenue as an investment. He paid $1,100 for the lot and sold it in 1881 for $2,250. The lot stayed empty until William Lee Ellis, the chairman of public works in Macon, purchased it in 1892 and the home was constructed on the lot. The lot was originally referenced as 300 Georgia Ave. until 1949 when the post office updated the addresses of the area. Ellis lived in the house for eight years and then sold it. The house then went through several owners until 1918 when Mr. Richard S. Thorpe bought the house for $13,200. Mr. Thorpe and his sons opened R.S. Thorpe and Sons clothing store (pictured right) at 567 Cherry St. in 1908. It was a clothing store for men and boys and had a women’s salon upstairs. As a businessman, Mr. Thorpe was active in civic affairs and religious work in Macon society. He always assisted in projects that would help create a better Macon. Mr. Richard Thorpe passed away in 1929 and was survived by his four sons: Virgil S. Thorpe, Cecil A. Thorpe, J. (Mack) Harris Thorpe, and Warren Thorpe. After Richard passed away, the house went to Cecil and Warren. Warren Thorpe and his wife Margaret had one daughter, Katherine Thorpe. They all shared the house with Mr. Cecil and seemed to make a very happy family. Katherine married John Dennis. Wimberly Treadwell and Marion Discher, granddaughters of Warren and Margaret, recall going over to the home after school and eating Margaret’s delicious snacks. Margaret had an open-door policy; anyone was welcomed into the home. She frequently had members of the community over to play bridge. Warren brought the money into the home while Margaret ran the household and was very active in the community. She had a bachelor’s degree from the University of California at Berkeley. She co-authored two books and was a contributor to specialized publications. She was the first president of the Junior League of Macon and was a member of the Macon Writers Club, the Macon History Club, the Mary Hammond Washington Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, and the Kappa Alpha Theta Sorority.

Warren Thorpe passed away in 1974, and Katherine passed away two years later. Margaret helped take care of Katherine’s children, Wimberly, Marion, and (little) Warren. Margaret stayed in the Georgia Avenue home until 1975 when she moved to Magnolia Manor.

Oscar Busboom bought the home and lived there with his family until the 1990s. The home saw two more families before it was recently purchased by David and Brooke Merrill, the current owners. The architecture of the house is magnificent both inside and out. The home is Queen Anne with Eastern Stick Style detail, which puts emphasis on asymmetrical composition and decorative “stick work.” The asymmetric style is prominent inside and outside of the home. The house also exhibits applied ornamentation in the form of wood boards on the exterior surfaces that are intended to express the inner structure of the building. The original front doors of the home are the focal point of the architecture. The ornate woodwork makes these doors a great entry way into the wonderful finishes inside the home.

RAILROAD PROJECT By EMILY FARLOW, CENTER FOR COLLABORATIVE JOURNALISM
The bridge that passes over the railroad on College Street is due for renovations. When this happens, Historic Macon plans to partner with Bibb County, the City of Macon, the College Hill Alliance and the Knight Neighborhood Challenge at the Community Foundation of Central Georgia to create interpretive panels for the new bridge featuring photos, local artwork and narrative history about the railroad in Macon. The partners also hope to have content and articles about the railroad’s history published in print and online. On October 1, 1825, the first survey for a railroad in Georgia was completed. The survey was for a distance of 49 miles between Macon and Milledgeville. In 1831, a railroad convention occurred, and appointed delegates Above: A photo of the Central Railroad Round House from the late 1800s. discussed the need for a railroad that connected Macon to Savannah. John C. Butler wrote in History of Macon and Central Georgia that a manuscript from the convention stated that “at that time not a mile of railroad had been constructed in Georgia.” The section of railroad that passes under the College Street bridge is part of what was originally called Monroe Railroad. The first bar of iron for the railroad was laid on October 9, 1838, and the first locomotive (named the Ocmulgee) arrived in November. The Monroe Railroad was the first railroad in Macon. On December 10, 1838, the first train carrying citizens ran all the way from Macon to Forsyth. “To the City of Macon--Central in the State, for beauty, commerce and enterprise, she stands without a rival in the South,” Butler quotes in History of Macon and Central Georgia. The actual bridge and rail line were constructed in 1851 when the original 1838 line was extended to a new station at Pine and Fifth Streets. A second prominent railroad developed a line to Savannah shortly after the Monroe Railroad was placed in service. The first passenger car traveling on this line, owned by the Central of Georgia Railroad, arrived in Macon from Savannah on August 1, 1843. This railroad was, at the time, the longest in the world built and owned by one company and was dubbed “the salvation of Georgia.” Due to bankruptcy, the effects of the Monroe Railroad and Banking Company were sold in 1845. Jerre Cowles bought the railroad and all the equipment. At this time, the railroad stretched 101 miles. Cowles renamed the railroad Macon and Western Railroad Company in January 1846 and began completing the railway to Whitehall (later to become Atlanta). During the 1850s, Central of Georgia Railroad connected its depot to Macon and Western Railroad by a bridge over the Ocmulgee River. This created the first railroad that stretched from Savannah through Macon and north to Atlanta. These lines still exist today. The Monroe Railroad, Macon and Western Railroad, and Central of Georgia Railway are all consolidated today within the Norfolk Southern Corporation.
