Happy Halloween

1518 Twiggs Street, Augusta, GA

This somewhat spooky, unoccupied and deteriorating property is the former home of Walter Spurgeon Hornsby (1882-1956) who was president of Pilgrim Health & Life Insurance Co.. Pilgrim, the first insurance provider for African-Americans in Georgia was headquartered in Augusta from its founding in 1898 to 1990.


  1. I hate to see old houses deteriorating....if I had megabucks, I'd buy this place. Beautiful.

  2. Augusta, Ga... Niiice!

    The ins co was sooo close to the century mark... so sorry. It looks like it was such a beautiful place at one time, maybe someone can still save it.

    Thank you so much for stopping by & visiting on Barn Charm, very much appreciated! =)

  3. Wow!

    I absolutely love this house, if I could
