Statement of Significance (as of designation - June 19, 1996):
This was the first home of the Medical College of Georgia, founded in 1829 by Milton Anthony, who established the highest possible standards of education and attracted an impressive faculty. The college advocated national standards for medical education a full decade prior to the founding of the American Medical Association. The college, a handsome Greek Revival structure with a monumental Doric portico, was designed by architect Charles Cluskey as a model for medical instruction.
