Two years later, Senoia’s Idea House still a draw

Susan and Evan Stitt are not the only ones who enjoy the swing on the front porch of Southern Living magazine’s 2012 Idea House in Senoia. The former Peachtree City residents moved to Senoia more than a year ago, but continue to get visitors from out of town and out of state wanting to see the home and have their picture taken on the front porch swing.

A tour of Southern Living magazine’s 2012 Idea House on the Gin Property in Senoia by Peachtree City residents Susan and Evan Stitt soon became an adventure that the couple had not predicted.

Though they purchased the home and moved in more than a year ago, Evan and Susan are still contacted weekly by people wanting a peek at the custom home which features an Old South/New South theme.

The former Peachtree City residents bought their new home on the Gin Property in September 2012 while the Idea House tours were ongoing and moved into the home in February 2013 after the tours ended. Read More»

Senoia plans citywide yard sale April 26

Senoia’s first citywide yard sale sponsored by the Senoia Downtown Development Authority and the Senoia Area Historical Society is set for April 26. Pictured are SAHS President John “Dub” Pearman, SAHS Museum Director Maureen Schulyer, DDA Promotions Committee Chairman Gail Downs and DDA Chairman Suzanne Helfman.

The idea of having a citywide yard sale was the brainchild of the Senoia Downtown Development Authority (DDA) and the Senoia Area Historical Society (SAHS). Residents interested in participating in the April 26 event should register at City Hall to be included on the list of yard sale locations.

Organizers said SAHS had already scheduled its annual yard sale fundraiser when DDA members suggested the idea of having a combined event on the same day. Read More»
