nomination:
The original lot was purchased in November, 1846 by Skelton Napier of Putnam County, Georgia, brother of Colonel Leroy Napier, great contributor to the Confederacy. The house was constructed facing Vineville Avenue, approached through a double avenue of cedars. But, like several other old Macon homes, it was turned to face Rogers Avenue in adjusting itself to the city's growth.

The Greek Revival house also has two distinctive architectural features. First, the Doric columns of its portico are set in between square columns, a feature that is without known precedent in ancient Greece or in the later Greek Revival style. Second, the house has a low wooden parapet with carved acroteria, which are architectural ornaments placed on a flat pedestal mounted at the corner of the house's pediment.
