The Kidd House in Lavonia, Georgia, also known as Kidd Residence was built in 1919. It is a one-and-a-half story bungalow house with Craftsman interior details. It was designed by architect Leila Ross Wilburn.[3]

In a survey of historic resources in Lavonia, the house with its pecan grove were found to be significant architecturally "as one of the most elaborate examples of Craftsman/Bungalow design" in the area, and also as an example of a small farmstead in the city, and also for its association with C.A. Kidd, Sr.[3]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[1]
