Courtesy 'This Old House' ~ "The Houses - Newnan is home to mostly antebellum and Victorian-era houses. You can find many bargains in the town's historic areas, such as an 1886 Victorian for $ 225,000 in the College-Temple District." You can find some fixers for that price, but ones already renovated, even a little, are worth a lot more money!
