T.R.R. Cobb was a UGA graduate, co-founder of its school of law, Confederate General, and principal author of the Confederate Constitution. 

After languishing for almost 20 years at Stone Mountain, GA, 70 miles from its original location on Prince Avenue in Athens, GA, the T.R.R. Cobb House was returned to the Classic City. Its new address is only about two blocks from its original site. Open to the public as a house museum, it is being restored to reflect the styles of 1852-1862 when Thomas Reade Rootes Cobb was at the peak of his short-lived career.

T.R.R. Cobb left an indelible mark on the history of Athens and Georgia. He was one of Georgia’s greatest lawyers, an advocate of education and religion, and an officer in the Confederate army. 

Every great piece of history deserves to rest in its true home. Returning the T.R.R. House to Athens creates a sense of time and place while providing a reference for accomplishments made long ago and provides an opportunity for broader understanding of the ideas of the past and how they influence our present.
