Ivey’s House, Jones Spur, Baker County

Ivy's House, Jones Spur, Baker County

The Ivey’s home was built in 1835 and was the first of the Baker County antebellum mansions. It is currently the oldest home in the county and the last one remaining built with wooden pegs. It was built for R. D. Ivey and his wife Nancy Ann, who moved to Baker County from North Carolina. I believe that the house originally sat in the town of Iveys Mill on the Ivey Plantation before being moved to Jones Spur. I am unsure if it is being restored, it sits on property owned by Burning Bush Christian Retreat. (Private Property)
