Also see . . .  Old Medical College of Georgia. The Old Medical College is a two story structure built on a square floor plan. Its front has a beautiful portico with a pediment supported by six massive fluted Doric columns. Although the structure was made of brick, it was covered with stucco that gives it a stone-like appearance. (Submitted on January 21, 2013, by Mike Stroud of Bluffton, South Carolina.)
