T.R.R. Cobb House Receives 2008 Preservation Award
The Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation presented 16 awards recognizing the best of preservation in Georgia during its annual meeting in Columbus.
The T.R.R. Cobb House is divided into two basic exhibition spaces. The Main Floor is set up as it might have looked during the period of 1852-1862 and is furnished with original pieces from the Cobb and related families, as well as other Athens families. The Upper Floor is of a more contemporary nature, with changing exhibits and display cases housing original weapons, objects, documents, and ephemera on particular topics. From Cobb’s Legion artifacts to copies of speeches by T.R.R. or Howell, these exhibits will attempt to tell another part of the story.
