The Holliday-Dorsey-Fife home was built by the uncle of infamous western figure “Doc” Holliday in the antebellum period. It later went on to be home to Confederate generals. Over the years, it was retired as a private residence and converted it to a museum. One special room of this home is the Veteran Room which contains artifacts of America’s wars and branches of service. There is an author exhibit which celebrates the contributions of local authors such as Jim Minter. Also, The ever popular Gone with the Wind exhibit continues attracting devoted fans of the novel and movie.

The classic style of home here in Fayetteville, Georgia is Greek Revival. It evokes a period of antebellum Georgia plantations. The most iconic feature are the large, white columns at the front of the structure. If you want to add a garage to a historical Greek revival home, you are going to need a garage door that looks more rustic and is mostly wood. You can contact a local pro today to discuss your garage door options, help you choose a great garage door that will be very compatible with your Greek revival home, and then have a seasoned Fayetteville garage door technician install it for you!
