The historic Butt House (circa 1914) was built by Colonel William Butt, one time alderman and Mayor of Blue Ridge, Attorney, and member of the Georgia Legislature.
Colonel William Butt and his wife, Fanny Butt, were prominent and beloved members of the community. They frequently held social gatherings in their home. Notable friend Margaret Mitchell, author of Gone With The Wind, visited the home on several occasions. Fanny Butt hosted a tea in the home to honor Mrs. Mitchell and all those invited dressed in Gone With The Wind costumes.
The Butt home was one of the first homes in Fannin County to have indoor plumbing, most of the windows and marble steps are original. The home has been given a gentle facelift to restore it to its original glory.
