Tickets for the Historic District Tour of Homes On Sale NOW
Nestled on 12 acres in the Concord Covered Bridge Historic District is an antebellum property and farmstead that boasts sheep, goats, chickens, ducks and exquisite peacocks among its residents. The Ruff House will share its 163-year history by showing off its recent renovation on the Historic District Tour of Homes this fall.
Built by Martin Luker Ruff, a Cobb County pioneer farmer and builder of water-powered mills along Nickajack Creek, this home has only had three owners in all these years. The original construction elements of the simple two-story farmhouse, incorporating nine working fireplaces, stacked-rock foundation, heart pine floors, hand-hewn beams, 11-foot beadboard ceilings, wainscoting, and lath and plaster walls, have been lovingly preserved over the decades.
This unique property, along with three other homes in the Historic District, will be part of a Tour of Homes event this fall. The two-hour guided tour, including transportation, will be held on Saturday, November 2nd and Sunday, November 3rd, with a limited number of tours conducted each day.
