Southern Time Capsule Part 3: The Dickey House

Today's tour takes us to a very ornate southern plantation home.

The Dickey House is considered an excellent example of neoclassical architecture in the south.

The house is a Georgia classic from 1840 has 14 rooms and covers 6250 square feet.





Rooms like these are always my favorite.

This one was a work room.

I just love the floor.




There were multiple dining areas within the home.







This little one was just for children.




A beautiful music room...




...a study...




...a parlor...




...this little bedroom was called the BOYS' room...




...and this room was called the mother-in-law's room...

because I know you all have a fireplace in YOUR bedroom, right?

Pretty cozy to me!




How's that for some antebellum southern style for you!

I think every room had a fireplace, did it not? Nearly every photo showed one, guess they needed it on cool nights!

This was an awesome post, thanks so much for sharing!
