Dunbar-Howard House

The historic rehabilitation of downtown Augusta's Dunbar-Howard House was completed in December. Augusta Mayor Deke Copenhaver joined the Augusta Metro Chamber of Commerce, the Downtown Development Authority, Georgia Cities Foundation and interested citizens for the ribbon cutting of the newly rehabed former Azalea Bed & Breakfast on Thursday, January 26th. Built between 1890 and 1904, the one-time family home has been converted into 12 studio apartments. The Queen Anne Victorian has kept its gingerbread trim details, shingled roof chimneys and full-length front porch. The longest continuous occupants of this home were the Dunbar and Howard families, cotton industrialists who lived in the home in the early 1900s.
