Circa 1855. Built by Abraham Atkins, it is reported to be the oldest brick home north of Athens in the state of Georgia. It was part of a large estate owned by Sherman Jackson Sims. Tragically he died of Typhoid in 1862 while serving in the Confederate Army, leaving his widow Amanda to run the estate and raise 8 children, When she died in 1905, much of the estate was subdivided and auctioned off. Some of the lots are now homes along Sims Street, part of Maysville's commercial district and property that became the railroad.
