The building at 208 East Taylor Street was constructed in 1855 in the Greek Revival style by George H. Ash. It is located on the north side of Calhoun Ward in the middle third of the 14th trust lot. The exterior consists of stuccoed brick masonry with a wide band of trim below the cornice line and a course of brick dentil detail. The slab porch with wooden columns and stone linteled windows are consistent with other George Ash designs (“Georgia Historical Society”). It received two separate Historic Landmark designations in 1973 and 2002 (“Chatham County Board of Assessors”).
The architect, George H. Ash, was an accomplished builder characterized by houses of sound construction and fine brickwork. He died in 1885 and was buried in Laurel Grove Cemetery (Henderson).
