Look at those interior details! Love the old picture of the house and the residents. The Captain John Day house needs someone to save it. It was built in 1880. It is located on 1.30 acres in Lumber city, Georgia. The home features a wrought iron fence, covered front porch, hardwood floors, tall ceilings, crown moulding, wainscoting, floor to ceiling windows and a claw foot tub. If I didn’t have my hands full in Danville, Virginia and Saltville, I would totally considering buying this one. Four bedrooms, two bathrooms and 3,112 square feet. $119,000
