Weracoba, Wildwood and Wynnton Historic District Collection (MC 79)

Scope and Contents

This collection consists of 2 neighborhood surveys prepared by Richard H. Coss, a history student at Columbus College (now known as Columbus State University). They cover subdivisions around Weracoba Park(also known as Lakebottom) and include Weracoba Heights, Park Place, St. Elmo and Delaunay Place. These notebooks were prepared during the spring and summer quarters of 1989 for HIS 799, taught by Dr. John Lupold.

The notebooks contain the history of the development of these areas of Columbus, Georgia through the 1920s. Included are numerous photographs of many of the homes in these subdivisions showing the different styles of architecture, along with information on builders, architects and owners, as of 1925.
