Barrett Whitehead Moore House

The Barrett Whitehead Moore House was built in 1930 by Levi Prater for Mr. and Mrs. E.R. Barrett on the old home site of Georgia’s governor Allen D. Chandler.

With its enclosed porch and unique brick exterior, the Barrett Whitehead Jr House sets itself apart from the other homes on Green Street. Its emphasis on horizontal verses vertical spread over the property along with its feature of shallow hipped roof lines, rows of windows, overhanging eaves, and its brick façade highlight this home as an example of Prairie style, which is highly uncommon in Gainesville.

In 1959 Carl Whitehead Jr. purchased the home and then sold it in 1994. It is now used as professional offices.
