Highland Hall, located in MidTown Columbus, Georgia was built in 1857 by the Ellis family and originally sat on a ten-acre lot. It was named to the National Register of Historic Places on 1980.[1]

Architecture[edit]

The house is a Greek Revival, raised cottage that was originally two rooms deep, symmetrically flanking a large central hall. A two-story rear addition was built at about 1905, incorporating what is thought to have been the original detached kitchen. The pedimented front porch has four square-sectioned columns and fine cast-iron balustrade and ornamental trim.[2]

History[edit]

The Ellis’ sold Highland Hall in 1878 for $700. During the next decade, Highland Hall changed hands several times before being sold to Estelle Collins in 1905. Ms. Collins remained in the home until her death in 1978.
