The original home of General T.R.R. Cobb was moved to Stone Mountain in 1986 and never restored. By the efforts of the Watson Brown Foundation, it was returned to Athens and restored to its 1852 appearance. It now operates as a house museum. In 2008 the Cobb House received the Preservation Award for Excellence in Restoration by the Georgia Trust. Whitsel Construction Services served as Construction Manager for the renovations.
