TRR Cobb House

In 2004, the Watson-Brown Foundation rescued the Thomas Reade Rootes Cobb house from a slow decline in a foreign place. For 20 years, Cobb’s home rested on cinder blocks at Stone Mountain Park, the victim of good intentions and budgetary constraints. The Foundation moved the house back to its original neighborhood in Athens, restored it, and in 2007 opened it to the public as a historic house museum dedicated to interpreting the life and times of T.R.R. Cobb.
