Built in 1850 by Frederick Adolphus Brahe, the Brahe House is an example of Sand Hills Cottage architecture in the Greek Revival style. Brahe came to Augusta from Albany, New York, prospering here as a silversmith and at one time holding the position of Official Tender of the City Clock.  His son, Henry, continued the family business by then known as Brahe’s Jewelers.  The family sold the business in the early 1900s.
