LA FLORA

When you arrive at Walton Street, we’ll take a right and walk a block up to La Flora. This is one of the few houses in town with shiplap siding, and certainly the only one with such a decorative design. The Madison Garden Club, founded in 1893 and thought to be the second garden club founded in Georgia, was reorganized around 1932 in this home by Mrs. R. H. Richard and was renamed La Flora Garden Club. When the Charles Cartwright family, previous owners, learned this, they named their home La Flora to honor the garden club.

The small house in the backyard was once five blocks closer to town behind the Dovecote House (stop 6). It was moved to this location and restored as a guest house.
