Document issues[edit]

Property names[edit]

The NRIS database does not include "house", though two different nomination forms do.[1][2]


Demolished but still listed[edit]

Former Gilmer County Courthouse

  • Gilmer County Courthouse, listed September 18, 1980, demolished in 2008. Courthouse Sq., Ellijay. Demolished in 2008. Still listed on the National Register in 2009. doncram (talk) 09:50, 9 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Savannah Pharmacy and Fonvielle Office Building, Savannah, Chatham County, refnum 13000023, was demolished ca. July 2014; see July 30, 2014 article in Savannah Morning News.
  • Goodall House (Macon, Georgia), 618 Orange Street. The fact that building is gone was noticed by editor User:Bubba73, who was preparing to visit it. There is a park now where the building was located. Based on Google maps / Google street view review, looking for a building as appears in photos accompanying NRHP nomination document. The nom document includes a map which no longer matches up as streets have been realigned; the park was not there at date of map. --doncram 19:40, 14 January 2017 (UTC)
There are some others that I've noted in county listings, but I don't know all of them offhand. Two are in National Register of Historic Places listings in Jenkins County, Georgia. I've been to where the hish school was - a foundation is still there. Going by the satellite view, a church is gone but the graveyard is there.

  • As of 2017, Google satellite view shows no buildings where the complex was located. Google Streetview dated May 2014, accessed April 22, 2017, shows an empty lot.
  • Debris from the demolition of the Old Primary School was burned in April 2011.Deborah Bennett (April 27, 2011). "BOE burns Old Primary School debris". The Millen News. Retrieved April 22, 2017.

I'm planning to go to both of those in late May. I was in Millen about a year ago and the school is gone but the foundation is still there. I should have photographed it, but I didn't. As far as the church, the cemetery is part of the NRHP, so I'll get it when I go up there. Bubba73 You talkin' to me? 22:23, 22 April 2017 (UTC)

County location issue[edit]

  • There are 43 listings in DeKalb County, Georgia or Dekalb County, Georgia filed under "De Kalb" county, at least per the list-table generator. What is correct name for county, and/or does NRIS list this wrong, or perhaps worse with a mixture of county names? doncram (talk) 18:14, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

Town location issue[edit]

Yes, it is on St. Simons Island. Bubba73 You talkin' to me? 05:57, 15 August 2017 (UTC)

Address issues[edit]

  • Notchaway Baptist Church and Cemetery in Baker County is listed at "Jct. of GA 91 amd GA 253" — need to change "amd" to "and". Nyttend (talk) 02:09, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
  • Fort-Hammond-Willis House in Baldwin County is listed at "1760 Irwinton rd." — need to capitalise "rd." Nyttend (talk) 02:22, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
  • Tindall Heights Historic District in Bibb County is listed as being "Roughly bounded by Broadway...tracks and Oglethorpe St" — need to add a period after "St" at the end of the location. Nyttend (talk) 02:31, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
  • Gordonston Historic District in Chatham County is listed as being "Roughly bounded by Skidaway Rd., Goebel Ave., Gwinnett St., and Pennslyvania Ave." Need to change "Pennslyvania" to "Pennsylvania". Nyttend (talk) 03:00, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
  • West Cloverhurst Avenue Historic District in Clarke County is listed as being "W. Cloverhurst Ave. vet. Springdale St. and S. Milledge Ave." — correct "vet" to "bet", i.e. "between". Nyttend (talk) 03:05, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
  • John Thomas Carnes Family Log House in Douglas County is listed at "Clinton Nature Preservem 8270 Ephesus Church Rd." — the "m" at the end of "Preserve" is plainly a typo for a comma; change to "...Preserve, 8270..." Nyttend (talk) 03:40, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
  • Virginia-Highland Historic District in Fulton County is listed as being "Roughly bounded by Amsterdam Ave., Rosedale Rd., Ponce de Leon ave., and the Norfolk Southern Railroad" — need to capitalise "ave." after "Leon". Nyttend (talk) 05:52, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
  • North Tallapoosa Residential Historic District in Haralson County is listed as being "Roughly Centered on int. Bowden St. and Manning ST." — perhaps decapitalise "Centered", definitely change "ST." to "St.", and add "of" after "int." Nyttend (talk) 12:35, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
  • Jefferson Historic District in Jackson County is listed as being "Roughly centered on the downtown central business district fo Jefferson extending to city limits to NW and SW" — change "fo" to "of". Nyttend (talk) 12:58, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
  • Paoli Historic District in Madison County is listed as being at the "Jct. of Cty Rd. 334 amd Cty Rd. 331" — correct "amd" to "and". Nyttend (talk) 14:02, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
  • Terrell-Sadler House in Putnam County is listed at "122 Harmony Rd/" — change the slash to a period. Nyttend (talk) 14:40, 10 May 2010 (UTC)
  • South Metter Residential Historic District. Per registration text and Google maps, change description to perhaps "Roughly bounded by Vertia, S. Kennedy, Hiawatha, and S. Leroy Streets". NRIS description of "S. Kennedy, S. Roundtree, S. Lewis, and S. Leroy" is a list of the north-south streets upon which most of the properties apparently are located and does not define bounds. A black-lined map of the district referenced in the registration text is not included in the PDF. --doncram 01:18, 29 June 2017 (UTC)
