The History of The Camellia House
Construction began in 1905 by William S. Cobb, Sr, and his wife, Berry. Mr. Cobb was the owner of a fertilizer manufacturing company here in Tifton. He later became involved in Real Estate with Captain Henry Tift.
The Cobbs wanted to build a home that would impress others and be a comfortable home for their growing family. The builder of the house is reported to be a 'Mr. Westbrook".
The home features its iconic three-story turret with original blown curved glass, hardwood floors, layers of detailed crown molding, Mastercraftsman hand-carved woodwork, and original stained glass. The wrap-around porch boasts 18 restored Corinthian columns.
Over the home's 118-year history, it has housed an art studio, dance studio, and law office. Yet, the heart of this beauty has always been a home.
The Raeder-Anderson Family is proud and humbled to be the home's most current residents. They are dedicated to maintaining the beauty of the home for Tifton's next generation.
Welcome to our Home.
