Our second house bio... a regular home on our tour. Known as the “Honeymoon House,” this large Craftsman bungalow was built on the corner of Dallas Street and Seminole Drive by Lemon Awtrey in 1907 for his bride, Varah Hill. The home contains 13 rooms and 5 bathrooms and features stained glass, decorative shingles and a door with a transom and sidelights. . Lemon was one of the first volunteer firemen for Acworth in 1907. He was also president of the S. Lemon Banking Company, Mayor of Acworth in 1918-19 and served as a long-time Alderman. He was dedicated to the growth of Acworth and was a charter member of the Acworth Men’s Club. He was also an Elder of Acworth Presbyterian Church. In the late 1930s under the financial pressures of the Great Depression, the Awtrey family was forced to develop their pastureland, and Seminole Drive became Acworth’s first in-town subdivision known as Awtrey Estates. The house remained in the Awtrey Family until 1994. The current owner has a plate painted by Varah on display in the home. #acworth#acworthy#acworthcharm#cobbcounty#exploreacworth#exploregeorgia#georgiahistory#historicbuildings#historicdecor#historichomes#historicdowntown#historictours#oldhouse#southerncharm#southernstyle#visitacworth#yourewelcomeinacworth SOURCES: -Acworth Society for Historic Preservation, Inc.
