—A City of Milton Historic Site —This clapboard house was built in 1899 by Willis Cass Tucker, Jr., and his wife Dealphia Jane Wheeler on an original 40-acre land lot from the 1832 lottery of Cherokee Indian lands. It typifies turn of the century Georgia farmhouses. Tucker sold it and 30 acres in 1907 to his farmer son Willis Rollin Tucker for $175. Originally of the Folk Victorian with pyramidal roof design, the structure has been gradually converted into a stunning Victorian cottage and wildlife habitat by successive owners. The gingerbread trim, added many years ago, was possibly purchased from a Sears-Roebuck catalog.
