to the Culpepper House
Bed & Breakfast. This Victorian era home was originally built
in 1871 by returning Confederate soldier, Dr. John Addy. Set among lovely
oaks planted during the Southern reconstruction era, the Culpepper House
later belonged to Dr. Wilbur Culpepper and family. The Culpepper House
remains among Senoia's most recognizable National Historic Register
homes. It is also a favorite for weddings,
receptions, socials, and business meetings.
Your Home Away from Home
foot ceilings in the great parlour, the one time
office of Dr. Culpepper, make it the perfect place to read or chat with
other guests. Even on the hottest Georgia day, it's a cool-dry place to
enjoy a beverage and slip out of the sun. During the winter months, the
fireplace warms this inviting room, as the antique decor warms your heart.
Beyond the large formal dining room, welcoming
grand foyer, and impressive main staircase, there are a number of
country-style comfortable areas for you at the Culpepper House. An
antique-laced family room has cable tv, movies, and a "kick-off-your shoes"
feel. You're also welcome to "feel like family" in the kitchen for late
night beverages or early morning coffee/juice with your hosts.
The wrap-around porch is pure Southern charm.
Most guests end up here at sunset & after dark. You'll unwind quickly as
you embrace the pace of Senoia. If you must contact that other fast paced
world, the Culpepper House has internet & email, plus fax for your business

For those of you wondering, a Jan. 4, 1979, article in the Newnan
Times-Herald, suggests "'spirits" lurk at the Culpepper House. The article
remembered Dr. Wilbur Culpepper as "Senoia's longstanding doctor, who
occupied the house beginning in 1902." It's here, Dr. Culpepper must have
told stories about his father, E. M. Culpepper, a
wheelwright with Company B, 1st Reg. GA. Cavalry during the Civil War. The
elder Culpepper died in service to the Confederacy sometime after June,
1864, the date of the last record with the Confederate service. The death
of Culpepper's father was noted in his aunt's Bible. Later, a niece of Dr.
Culpepper would tell the whole story. She says Culpepper's Confederate
father was killed in the Civil War near Macon. He was in the cavalry. A
survivor who was near him in the battle said the order was given for every
fourth man to dismount and go forward. The one to whom this order applied
hesitated. The elder Culpepper took his place and was killed in action...
Alas, your innkeepers insist the only true spirit you'll find at
the Culpepper House is the spirit of hospitality! The Culpepper House has
been mentioned in Southern Homes, Country Living and Metro South magazines.
It was also the focus of a LA Times article on B & B's.
