Description:

Although now an attorney's office and not open for tours, the former home of the wealthiest African-American woman of the late 19th century testifies to the tenacity of Amanda Dickson. Daughter of a white planter and his slave, Dickson fought all the way through the Georgia Supreme Court for her inheritance and won. She bought this home after the 1886 trial and lived there until her death in 1893.
