Lilburn Farmers Market
The Wynne-Russell House, built in 1826, is on the Registry of Historic Places and is a pristine example of “Plantation Plain” architectural style of the upper Piedmont region. The interior floors, walls and fireplaces are original and largely untouched by modern finishing. The site also includes a family cemetery. The home is located at 4684 Wynne-Russell Drive in Lilburn. Donations to the Lilburn Community Partnership, which oversees the operation of the house, are welcomed.

The Botox. The parking lot was graded and re-paved.
And finally the removal of unhelpful things......The huge sweet gum tree near the house was taken down for practical reasons. It's too close to the septic system and too close to the house.
