The Upson-Howard place was laid out in the 1820's and has a decidely New England atmosphere, for Stephen Upson came from Connecticut. The five and a half acres are enclosed by a four foot stone wall of semi-dressed stone blocks, laid without morter. A stone wall of this type is very unusual in Georgia.
