    Remerton Area

    Row houses of new/old

    This is an area that was/has been promoted as a place to come. It used to be the core of a cotton mill, that closed some years ago. Within the local, the company built worker homes, and some stand today, as well as old places of shopping. Now a lot is subsidized lower income housing, so I saw no real draw here. The local college students come here to drink cheaply at he bars.

    Side of the home

    By far one of the best tours on our trip, and there were many good ones. This had an excellent docent take us around, and explain the history in finite detail of the family living here. It was built in 1898, and has 23 rooms and a huge semi-circle portico with ornate columns; hence where the house name came from. The Owen family was in the lumber business, and thus have great wood panels throughout the home. It was turned over to the local garden club in 1983, and they spent $3 million in renovations.
    It is open only 2-5 Monday-Friday, and admission is $5.

    downtown

    downtown valdosta is about three miles east of I-75 on US 84. downtown valdosta offers a nice downtown shopping area with numerous gift shops, antique stores, bars, and restaurants. only a five minute detour off I-75 downtown valdosta's restaurants offer a nice change of pace from the usual interstate fast food fare.
