Betty’s Creek Landmark, Circa 1894. Three acres in Georgia. $189,000

March 1, 2019

This Betty’s Creek Landmark was built in 1894. Located on three acres in Rabun Gap, Georgia. I’m not so sure about the price on this one. It’s a beautiful setting, but that price seems awfully high considering the work. It does have some amazing history though. Home to one of the six families that settled Betty’s Creek Valley. In 1937 the barn housed Norman Coleman’s school bus, a 1937 Chevrolet with a wooden body. That is a beautiful stone chimney. Three bedrooms and one bathroom. $199,000 New Price: $189,000
