Regarding 143 Buford Place.
Vineville is historically significant in terms of architecture, landscape architecture, community planning and development, and local history. In general, Vineville manifests a history that represents the characteristic evolution of a neighborhood from an early-nineteenth-century agrarian community through a more-or-less exclusive enclave to an early-twentieth-century suburb in a metropolitan area. More specifically, Vineville contains a significant collection of middle and upper-class nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century residential architecture, some of which was designed by notable Georgia architects including Neel Reid. This architecture is set within informally landscaped yards and tree-lined streets that reflect prevailing turn-of-the century tastes in landscape architecture. The streets and lots themselves, aligned in a roughly gridiron plan, reflect a characteristic manner of subdividing and developing land. Vineville was also the home of many prominent figures in the social, political, professional, cultural, and business life of Macon and Georgia.
