February 7, 2019

The Susan Lane Tillman Moore house was built in 1866. Located on .46 acres in Tifton, Georgia. Who was Susan? She was the first woman to be elected to serve two terms to the Georgia State Senate. Just the other day someone asked me why houses weren’t named after women, here you go! This house needs a lot of work and it looks like someone has done some stripping of the interior. Situated in the heart of the city in the Historic District. A lot of the original hardwood floors remain, as well as two fireplaces. Three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 3,367 square feet. $125,000 New price: $79,000
