About This Image
Macon County Courthouse - Georgia Metal Print by Mark Tisdale.

The subject of this Georgia metal print is the 1894 Macon County Courthouse. Built in the Romanesque style of architecture, it was constructed to replace a previous courthouse lost to fire. Local lore holds that original plans called for it to be built in stone instead of brick but the cost was too high and the building organizers settled for a granite cornerstone. It's also said that there was an attempt to move the county seat, and thus the new courthouse, to Montezuma. But Oglethorpe won out and remains the county seat to this day.

The architects for our handsome old courthouse were W. Chamberlain & Company of Knoxville, Tennessee. Plans were completed in 1893 with the building being finished the following year. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.

In my memories of childhood, the courthouse was an off-white color. It's possible when it was newly painted it had been white. Whatever the case, it wasn't nearly as pretty as it is today having been restored to its original unpainted brick exterior. It's shown in this print with red brick beneath picturesque blue skies.

Example of Metal Print
Metal Prints - Back Frame

Metal prints are a contemporary and stylish choice that will arrive at your door ready to hang.

The artwork is printed on a 1/16" thick sheet of aluminum that is then mounted on a 3/4" thick wooden frame. The wooden frame is recessed from the edge of the print giving the appearance of a thin high-gloss metal print that appears to be offset from your wall.

Each metal print is made to your order and printed using archival quality materials that should last a lifetime. Metal prints take 10 to 15 business days to produce and are shipped directly to you in sturdy packaging.

The only decision you will have to make when ordering your metal print is how large you would like it to be.

Wonderful Memories

I'm a Hill and when I saw this I just had to buy it. I have so many fond memories of spending summer weeks down in Montezuma at Nanny and Paw's store. I was so sad when the flood filled the store with water but it was a testament to the community when so many banded together to help out afterwards. Just know I bought this print to frame and take to Nanny so she can enjoy it as well. Thank you so much for making this ❤️

She Loves It!

My girlfriend just received the print, and she loves it! We both love the vibrant colors, and Forsyth Park, Savannah in general, and Tybee Island are special to us because she lives in NC and I live in FL, so every once in a while we’ll meet in the middle and explore together.
Thank you so much!
