The Wynne Russell House - History and Tour

In this video I get a tour of the Wynne-Russell house in Lilburn, Georgia. This type of house would have been built by the average person on their homestead, and gives a glimpse into the life of a regular person making a living in that era. After falling into disrepair, the house was rescued and renovated.This is a story about the restoration work of many volunteers who continue to make it a place for the whole community to enjoy.

The Simmons-Ezzard House | Belle La Vie Salon

In this video I get a tour of the gorgeous Simmons-Ezzard House in historic Lawrenceville, Georgia, right off the courthouse square. I spoke with Nicole Marie about the history of the house and her renovations to turn it into Belle La Vie Salon. Previous tenants had left the house in poor condition, but her personal connection to the owners and past experience with home restoration came together to bring life back to the house.
