I saw that this was in the Top 10 sites for the Athens area so visited it. I was not disappointed! The home has been mostly restored and furnished with period furniture and decorations. The tour is self-guided but one of staff was available to answer questions. I asked her to open one of the armoires so I could see the inside which she did. There were also paintings of the battle of Fredericksburg where General Cobb died. There's also an extensive library on the Civil War and history of the South upstairs so snap a photo of the titles so you can search for copies of the books for your own library. There was a map showing when the various portions of the house were added as well as a timeline detailing the two moves. And there are shadow boxes of period artifacts like bullets and electrical fuses. They have also cut away sections of the walls in several places so you can see the inner construction of the home... fascinating. Definitely worth an hour of your time.
