description

Summary

Significance: The house at 605 Simmons Avenue is a representative example of early-to-mid twentieth century worker's housing in an African-American Milledgeville neighborhood. The vicinity developed in response to both the coming of the railroad in the late-1800s as well as turn-of-the-century business and industrial growth nearby. This property is also important for its association with Dr. Julian F. Boddie, a prominent black physician in Milledgeville during the first half of the twentieth century.
