Built circa 1880 by Dr. William West Bussey for his bride, Virginia Lois Walker, this fine Second Empire style house features an original pressed-metal mansard roof, a wooden cornice with both brackets and dentils, intricate window hoods, and a front bay crowned by an unusual octagonal peaked roof. Dr. Bussey was one of the first graduates of the Medical College of Georgia after it reopened after the Civil War. Although he practiced medicine for a time, he later went into the wholesale grocery business. This became the Ronald McDonald House in 1994.
