Robert Toombs House

Robert Toombs was a successful planter and lawyer who led a turbulent career as state legislator, U.S. Congressman and Senator. In 1870, as the Reconstruction Era drew to a close in Georgia, Toombs felt Georgia should live under a constitution of its own making. His last service to Georgia citizens was helping create the Constitution of 1877, which was not amended until 1945.
