That is what I took away from this historic site. The gentlemen working on a beautiful fall Saturday, were preparing for upcoming third grade field trips. The restoration of the first floor was impressive, but the examples of how the staff is engaging & educating the young is inspirational! A great example of how important it is to teach youngsters...

Don't miss this antebellum home that exhales the breath of Georgians who shaped their fine state. Life, death, love, children, family, honor, law and war have happened between these walls.

The T.R.R. Cobb House is truly a treasure in the downtown historic district in Athens. If these walls could talk, I'm sure they would say many extraordinary things! This house was the home of Thomas Reade Rootes Cobb, who is considered one of the 'first citizens' in Athens. Just as this amazing home has a unique history, so does Cobb,... More

This was has been dismantled and moved TWICE. Beautiful home of the period with a LOT of history. The flooring, the period pieces, the history -- worth the trip. So glad house was brought back to Athens and restored as a public historic house museum.

A historic house museum that shows how life was back in 1844. Compared to the present time how life was shared inside a house.

Thanks heavens this house was saved from destruction, so many old houses in Athens were removed for "progress". It is a lovely house with unique architecture. Well worth the visit - lots of period furniture and even a beautiful 18th century dress. the archeology display upstairs is also very interesting

T.R.R. Cobb (1823-1862) was a Confederate General during the American Civil War and his home on Hill Street in Athens is a fascinating stop for the history buff or anyone interested in learning about the collective past on the city and country. It is open Tuesdays through Saturdays, closed Sunday, Monday and holidays. There is no fee but a $2.00... More

I am certain adults visiting this beautiful home will find the presentation as wonderful as we did. However, this review will speak to the excellent presentation given to young students on our recent field trip. What sets this destination apart from the myriad of others I have studied throughout the decades is the interactive presentation with the children. The historians... More

We were so lucky to be the only visitors when they first opened Saturday morning. Terrell gave us such personalized attention and gave us so much one-on-one time with the house. The house is such an exquisite place to visit for history or Civil War buffs! Although, I would not recommend this place for young children because of the fine... More
