In 1886, a century before the Cultural Arts Council Douglasville/Douglas County purchased this elegant, late Victorian period home, Judge and Colonel W.T. Roberts exchanged wedding vows with Emma Quillian, daughter of the Reverend J. C. B. Quillian. Reverend Quillian was one of the early settlers of Douglas County, and the property’s original owner. After the death of Reverend Quillian, Colonel Roberts bought the land from his mother-in-law, and work on the two-story Neoclassical home began on March 21, 1901.
The Roberts-Mozley House at 8652 Campbellton Street was the first listed on the National Register of Historic Places and remains one of the historic district’s loveliest homes. Built in 1901, the two-story columned neoclassical-style house was home to three Douglasville mayors and a state senator before it became the home of the Cultural Arts Council Douglasville/Douglas County in 1986.
More than one hundred years after the home was built, the past of this elegant house is vibrant and alive in the dark stained heart-of-pine that dominates the grand foyer, multi-landing staircase, and the forgotten tradition of a “courting bench.” Fireplaces, warmed by the soft colors of antique tortoise shell tiles, welcome you and your guests to enjoy the way of life enjoyed by the previous owners of the house. The outdoor sculpture by Georgia artist Joel Yawn is on the Smithsonian Institute’s national Save Outdoor Sculpture registry.
