The Crescent’s History

“The Crescent,” a landmark home on the National Register of Historic Places, was built by Col. William S. West in 1898.  He built the neoclassical, crescent-shaped front porch, 23-room home for his family. The Crescent is on the National Register of Historic Places.

In 1951, three ladies in the Garden Club saved the demolition of the West’s former home, and it became the home of all the Garden Clubs in Valdosta.
