Property History
The C. T. House is a contributing structure in the Laney-Walker North Historic District, which was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1985. Born into slavery near Hephzibah, Georgia, Walker was one of the early enrollees at the Augusta Baptist Institute (now Morehouse College in Atlanta) and became one of the most prominent ministers of his era. He was the founder in 1885, and first pastor, of Augusta's Tabernacle Baptist Church. As a captivating orator, Rev. Walker gained worldwide recognition as the "Black Spurgeon," a reference to British evangelist Charles Haddon Spurgeon. Walker attracted many Northern tourists who frequented Augusta's winter season hotels during its tourist era in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, many attending Tabernacle Baptist Church to hear him preach. Notable among visitors to hear his sermons were John D. Rockefeller and President William Howard Taft. This led to building the present Tabernacle edifice between 1913 and 1915.The house served as Rev. Walker's residence in Augusta from about 1905 until his death in 1921 when the street was known as Gwinnett Street. Gwinnett Street was renamed Laney-Walker Boulevard in 1976, partially in his honor, as is the neighborhood and historic district. The nearby C. T. Walker School was also named in his honor. The house is an excellent example of the larger house type in its neighborhood, which are rare to find intact where disinvestment and demolition are rampant.

 
Property Description
The Charles T. Walker House is a two story wood-frame house with brick pier foundation. It was abandoned by the previous owners around 2005. Historic Augusta purchased the home in 2016 and has been working towards stabilizing the house and locating a preservation minded buyer. A new roof and stabilization of the front porch was recently completed. Original character defining features and materials are found throughout the house, and it is a certified historic structure for the purposes of rehabilitation, meaning a completed rehabilitation is potentially eligible for both state and federal rehabilitation tax credits.

 
Additional Notes
This property will need substantial work, and Historic Augusta's Preservation Committee will require an interested buyer to provide proof of good financial standing and a demonstrated ability to complete a historic rehabilitation.
