Colquitt County, Georgia

Est. 1854


Iris Court was built in 1854 in Albany, Georgia for Judge John and Adelaide Stovall Jackson. Following the Civil War, Iris Court was used for Federal Headquarters where area citizens were required to swear allegiance to the United States in the presence of American officials to regain their United States citizenship. The home was just one block away from the Albany town square. The wheels of fate were at work as a neighbor, Edward Vason Jones, was an admirer of Iris Court as a young boy. As Albany’s town center grew more commercial, Iris Court was to be torn down and dismantled for its beautiful materials. Luckily, that young boy who had admired Iris Court years ago, returned to his home town of Albany after World War II to practice architecture. Jones contacted his friend, Charles O. Smith, Jr., who ended up purchasing Iris Court and moving it to Moultrie where it sits today. Edward Vason Jones, a distinguished architect who would later work on projects for the Diplomatic Reception Rooms at the United States State Department, and later for the White House, dismantled, reconstructed, renovated, and restored Iris Court. Edward Jones was to have said that Iris Court was his favorite private project.

Today, this beautiful antebellum home sits on approximately eighteen private landscaped acres just outside of Moultrie, Georgia. The main level of the home consists of a formal dining room, drawing room, living room, kitchen, half bath with powder room and breakfast room with large butlers pantry. The second level of the home has four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms. The house is spacious covering about five thousand two hundred square feet. The grounds are spectacular. This is one of a kind offering is available at a price of $1.75 million. A guest house and additional acreage is available for purchase separately
