Twin City to hold Christmas Tour of Homes
This photo shows the Durden-Neal House on First Avenue in Twin City. Robert Wade Durden and his wife, Annie Kate Roberts Durden, organized and founded Durden Banking Company Inc. They had this Folk Victorian Cottage built in 1920and were the first residents. The house still has its pine floors and original fireplaces; it is the only house in the area with a storm cellar. Donna and Jimmy Neal purchased the house from Tillie Ann Durden Burr, Wade and Annie Kate's daughter, in 1978. Not until this year did the house undergo remodeling, with 99.9 percent of the work being done by Jimmy Neal, a carpenter by trade. The exterior remains unaltered, and the interior retains the original tongue and groove wainscoting, the original farmhouse sink, as well as many other details. - photo by Special
Besides being "twice as friendly, twice as nice," Twin City, just 35 miles west of Statesboro and 13 miles west of Portal on U.S. Highway 80, is a "Little City (with a) Big History." Community members have been hard at work since the city's historic district was listed earlier this year on the National Register of Historic Places. A year ago, the city was admitted into the Main Street Program at the Our Town level as well.
