Walker-Moore House Lost to Fire-Sparta, Georgia

When you think of the historic homes of Sparta, Georgia, you likely don’t think of Spanish Colonial Revival. Sparta had at least one, and it was lost to fire in recent months. It was a contributing property to the Sparta Historic District.

Tax records indicate it was built in 1905, but the GNARGHIS survey states it was built in 1920. John D. Walker initially built the home and later sold it to the G. B. Moore family.

I will update the post with the cause of the fire once I know.

This is not my image. I pulled it from Wikipedia, but I wanted to show you what it looked like before the fire.
