Want this! A village in Georgia on 57 acres! Circa 1850’s. $275,000

February 20, 2024

I totally want this! It’s your own village with several structures. This would be so much fun to own! This was a functioning village of some sorts from 1970 until Covid hit. It never recovered. “Westville” was built in the 1850’s. It is located on 57 acres in Lumpkin, Georgia. The property includes an old school, antebellum homes, cabins, open venue, public sewer and water. My mind is running wild with this one. But do I really need that many more houses? Six bedrooms, two bathrooms and 8,000 square feet. $275,000

From the Zillow listing:


This unique 57 acre property was operated from 1970 until the Covid shut down of 2020 as Westville, a historic 1850s antebellum village, but it is time for the next chapter. Several homes from the village were recently relocated to Columbus. The acreage and remaining structures would make a fantastic weekend retreat or event venue. The property includes a school house, antebellum homes, cabins, an open venue, public sewer and water, ample road frontage and many other unique features. Do you have the vision?
