The Cason-Veal House in Jewell, Georgia is an early Plantation Plain house on 2.5 acres of land. The house includes many of its original features, including wide plank paneling on several interior walls and front porch, hand-cut dentil moldings, and scored plaster detailing on the exterior of the chimneys. The primary massing of the house is a two over two with no central hall. The shed addition features a small kitchen and full bath. An addition was removed from the east side of the house but remains standing next to the house. The house was built by either William Cason or his son Adam. Adam Cason was a successful farmer and land owner both before and after the Civil War, at one time operating a cotton gin in the area.

The Cason-Veal House has been stabilized, with the beginning stages of a restoration begun. Unfortunately, a new owner is needed to carry on the project. Recent updates include custom nine-over-six true divided light wood windows, custom interior doors, removal of some modern materials on the interior, updated electrical service, and a new well. Plumbing for the kitchen and bath will need to be repaired. Issues that remain to be addressed include masonry on the chimneys, exterior siding and paint, some termite damage, and some interior finishes. The property includes an outbuilding with many materials collected for the restoration effort.

    Some interior work needed??… All kidding aside looks like a great project for the right person. Now watching This Old House in Charleston SC and the wooden house they are renovating there is a rotten hulk that had the regular hosts a bit speechless on their first walk through. Interesting to see the local craftspeople who are used to working on historical renovations. Many of your experts will point out houses that look beyond any hope and say they can be restored. So I’m learning to keep an open mind. Of course it’s always nice to have money. This one is a classic and would be very beautiful restored..

    What a well written, honest and realistic yet hopeful description of the home and its condition. I have to say that after reading the description, though, I still wasn’t quite prepared for the actual interior condition. Still, a really neat historic home worth saving.

    The stripped interior is very sad. All that missing plaster would have recorded all sorts of ghost details, over-painted edges that record the profiles of moldings, breadth of door and window trim, etc. However, there are almost certainly other homes in the same area by the same builder.
    A lovely challenge.

      Lots of these early Plantation Plain style house interiors were all pine tongue and groove ,sometimes with horizontal boards to suggest wainscot w/ vertical boards for remainder. Most were not plastered- and if plastered usually just the area above wainscot/ chair rail and usually in one room only. Originally most likely Hall and Parlor plan.

      Blocked as in you get an error message? Or because it doesn’t appear right away?

    I just hope there are other folks out there who have the courage needed to complete this early treasure.

    When I’m Old House Dreaming it’s about houses like this, not the ones where they agents go on and on breathlessly describing *upgraded and updated* changes to the house. Those usually leave cold, and often sad for the house. This kind speaks to my heart. And yes, I’ve owned a couple of them so my love is based in reality.

    What a big project for the right person. Would love to see this place restored. I bet it will be awesome if restored correctly.
