From the Zillow listing:

 

Built in 1925, The Morgan House stands atop a graceful swath of lawn on West Moring Street in Swainsboro. This stately home, located on 2.09 acres, boasts a spacious front lawn, small creek, smaller side lawns of differing levels, a grand fire pit, screened back porch and more. There is ample parking along the large circular drive in front of the home. The Morgan family is widely known as one of the most influential and philanthropic families in Emanuel County history. Over the past century this home has not only served as a home where the Morgan’s raised 3 extremely successful children but also as a place where many dignitaries and elected officials would meet to discuss the future of our County, State and Country. Mr. Morgan lived in this home until his passing at 100 years old. It was Mr. Morgan’s request that the home be bequeathed to the local East Georgia College “EGC” upon his death. After nearly a decade of ownership the trustees of EGC have decided to sell this home and use the funds to further endow the legacy of the Morgan Family within EGC. With 4 bedroom/2 full bathrooms and 2 half baths this home has it all. There is a large family room, formal dining and living rooms, a beautiful sunroom, screened-in porch, and 3 big bedrooms. The grounds have mature azaleas and dogwood trees with a lovely concrete patio for entertaining. The home does need some TLC and updating.
