Madison in Morgan County, Georgia — The American South (South Atlantic)
Early Public Forum
McAfee's home (c.1806) is a form known as an "I-house" - two stories tall and one room deep typically with a central hall. Like many of Madison's early residences, the building featured rearward expansion, multiple porch additions, and the influence of popular architectural styles over time. Because of its significance, the property was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 2004 and became the first individual historic property designated outside of the Madison Historic District (NR 1974, 1990; locally designated 1989).
