Director Jonathan Poston talked about one of Georgia’s most distinguished structures, the Johnston-Felton-Hay House in Macon. The house was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1974. It was built from 1855 to 1859 in the Italian Renaissance Revival style, and its technological amenities were unsurpassed in the mid-19th century, and included hot and cold running water, central heat, a speaker-tube system, in-house kitchen, and an elaborate ventilation system.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2014 LCV Cities Tour” in Macon, Georgia, from January 20-23 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Cox Communications local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. The history segments air on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments air on BookTV on C-SPAN2. close
