A turn-of-the-century railroad town, Douglasville has a central business district parallel to the railroad tracks that is mostly made up of one- and two-story brick commercial structures and some lofts. Varying styles of architecture in the residential district tell the story of Historic Downtown Douglasville and its development over the years as the railroad brought in visitors and businesspeople. Wonderful examples of Victorian, Queen Anne, Craftsman, Colonial Revival, Romanesque, Italianate, Beaux Arts Classicism and Tudor Revival styles can still be viewed from outside and enjoyed today during your self-guided walking tour of our city.
Among the historic residential buildings, 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, this 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 of Douglasville/Douglas County, Inc. in 1986. One of the most striking buildings in the downtown historic district is the “Old” Douglas County Courthouse, completed in 1956. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it is one of just four buildings still standing in the United States that was designed in the international style of the 1950’s. North Georgia marble, glazed brick and polished granite give the building its distinctive look.
