This antebellum house is an interesting walk through history. I wished they had a bit more about TRR Cobb. I didn't realize that he was the principal author of the Confederate constitution until after I left. I also noticed that he had Georgia law reporter...More

It was a great place to stop in and check out, but it only took about 10 minutes to look around. Probably because the upstairs is off limits, it seemed like their offices, so there's only about 4 rooms to look at on the main...More

The house has an interesting history, especially the part where it was moved some 70 miles to Stone Mountain in 1985, left alone for 20 years, then moved back. Most of the furnishings are not original and the oil paintings are photo reproductions.

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...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.
