The neighborhood of Summerville has one of the most extensive collections of historic residences of any community in The State of Georgia. The variety of architectural periods and styles of Summerville along with the extensive landscaping and gardens of the district creates a rich visual tapestry. Traditionally historic buildings have been viewed by many only to be structures built in the eighteenth or early nineteenth centuries and in historic styles such as Georgian or Federal. This limited perception of what is historic creates a distorted view of the true history of a neighborhood. The development of a community through time is a never ending story of people, places and buildings.
