“Home of George Walton - Signer of the Declaration of Independence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

This place is a real gem tucked away near Walton Rehab on the Augusta Canal. It is the first house purchased in Georgia for the purpose of Historic Preservation. In 1976 it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Daughters of the American Revolution purchased the house in 1900 to save it from the wreckers. This was the country home for George Walton who named it Meadow Garden. Walton was one of the three signers of the Declaration of Independence from Georgia. George Walton and his wife Dorothy Camber moved into the original four room house in 1792 and lived there until about 1804. About 1815 another house was combined with the older house.
The wonderful furnishings and decorating inside the house reflect the era that the Waltons lived there. The furnishing on the 1815 side reflect early Victorian. None of the furnishings were owned by the Walton family. All furnishings have been purchased by the DAR or donated by members and friends of the DAR.
