Architecture in middle Georgia has become a classic work of detailed scholarship and research in both the architectural features of middle Georgia and the sociological and historical implications as well. From 1807 to 1869 Milledgeville was the capital of Georgia, and many superb examples of antebellum architecture are still to be found there in Baldwin County and in the surrounding counties of the Oconee area - Hancock, Jasper, Johnson, Putnam, Washington, and Wilkinson.
