Ware-Lyndon House (1856)

Listed in the National Register of Historic Places and one of the few antebellum homes with Italianate elements remaining in the Athens area, this house museum is the centerpiece of the Lyndon House Arts Center.

The Ware-Lyndon House is a circa 1840s late Greek Revival home with Italianate influence. It is the last remaining house in Lickskillet, the once fashionable 19th century in-town neighborhood. The interior has been restored and arranged with decorative art and furnishings of the period. The historic display room features artifacts that are relevant to the historic house and to the history of Athens.
