Built circa 1851 by commission merchant Elijah Robertson, this house was occupied by the family of David S. Boutet, grocer and coffeehouse owner, until 1886 when it became the home of America Amanda Dickson Toomer, among the wealthiest women of color in the United States. The daughter of Julia, a slave, and cotton planter David Dickson of Hancock County, Georgia, Mrs. Toomer inherited her father’s entire estate. Simple Greek Revival in style, it was rehabilitated as law offices in 1971.
