OMG, a friend was telling me about Spell's Mansion and how someone was fixing it back up. On Sunday I drove by and OMG the house is Beautiful. I have never seen the house look this good. I never knew how massive the house was until yesterday. This is going to be a showplace for our community. A lot of money is being spent on it but I am excited to see something finally happing to it. I would love to see the inside and can't wait until it is all finished. Sorry 'Little Bit' but it is not a dump anymore!

No Roger Byrd left a long time ago. Not sure who owns it, though think someone mentioned the fellow was from Baxley.

Is the remodeling still in progress? I hope the owners are able to restore this to the showplace that it deserves to be. I'm like the rest of you, I would love to see pictures of the progress but I understand if the owner wants privacy.

The remodeling is still going on, the doctor who owns it allows people to visit when he is there. We have been over a couple of times and it is amazing how far this place has came in such a short time. He told us he was posting pictures of the project, but I am not sure where. It looks great. I love the top of the house

Does anyone know who is doing the remodeling? Is it the owner or did he hire an outside contractor? I drove by earlier and whoever is doing the work is doing a fine job.
I think it is the new owner, he is always there working on something. The house looks the best it has in many years. I know the neighbors are proud to see something happening with the once eye-sore. I agree the work is good

I have to agree with you. Went to the airport today, first time I had driven by in a few weeks or so, the progress is still going on. We love the back of the house, wish I could see more of it. I'll bet the insides are beautiful, it is amazing that the house has withstood all the abuse and destruction through the years but it has to be the finest home in Jeff Davis a true showplace.
Does anyone know if the house is being fixed up to be lived in or is it being redone to sell?

Does anyone recall the young lady that died from a fall at Spells Mansion. Somone asked me if I remembered when and who and Im sorry that I don't remember.
Where did she fall from? I have heard a number people say the stairs, then I heard the back porch, then the roof so where did she actually fall. Does anyone really know the true story?????

Well, actually the house sold recently for $111,111.00. Not $400,000.00.

It might have sold for $111,111.00 but it is going to take $300,000.00 plus to fix it. Maybe they have the money to do it! It already looks better than it has in 20 years. So 'Knows' are you the lucky new owner or just another gossiper on this site?

If you know him, do you think he will allow us to come look inside? If the insides are going to look anything like the outside it will be AMAZING! I am so glad this place is getting fixed back up. It looks so good, we heard he was a doctor from Baxley and was real nice but ?.
I have not seen anyone there in a few weeks, are they still working on it?
What is the inside like? I really want to see it. Did you go inside??? Please tell.
Oh, love the gates - so massive

Yesterday, while visiting home (Hazlehurst)we rode out passed Spell's Mansion. I must say the house is amazing. I could not belive my eyes as we drove pass. My husband and I both did a double take and then had to turn around just to see it again. Whoever redone the house our hats are off to them.

The entry from the road really screams Mansion, I loved those huge entry pilars and the gates. Oh and the back was stunning as well.

Jeff Davis should be proud - Spell's Mansion has looked the best it has in many decades.

Great job to the new owners.

Who got arrested for trespassing at Spell's Mansion, heard they were caught on video. Who owns the house now? Glad to hear they are not putting up with the same things that people use to do to the house. Its finally looking better than ever "people leave it alone"
