******** NEWS FLASH*****

Our facelift is continuing. Due to scaffolding and wet paint, we will continue to be closed a very short time in the near future.  We are so excited to see our Grand Old Lady receive some TLC with her appearance.

Much of the downstairs has been completed.  Door trims, window trims, and a few other spots are still waiting to be finished.  The painters will next turn their efforts to the upstairs and complete the work very soon.

Lots of even more new things are coming in the near future even after this treatment! She is getting spiffed up as she well-deserves to be. Please plan to visit the Crescent after she gets her enhancements. We hope you will be as delighted as we are! Please come see our fresh new look starting soon.

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.
