Located in a predominantly residential area of North Augusta, the Georgia Avenue-Butler Avenue Historic District is on a hill overlooking the city of Augusta, Georgia. The district contains four buildings of particular historical or architectural importance plus twelve supporting properties, which include houses, an old family burial ground, open space, and an undeveloped lot. Only three buildings located within the district do not contribute. The sixteen total properties in the district illustrate the growth of the area from the time it was part of an antebellum plantation through its development as a winter resort and year-round residential community for Augusta area professionals around the turn of the twentieth century. Most of the buildings were constructed between 1900 and 1930 and represent a range of vernacular residential designs including Classical Revival, Queen Anne/Victorian era, Colonial Revival, and Tudor Revival. One of the key properties is a plantation house that was built around 1859, two of the other key properties are buildings associated with a hotel that stood from 1903 to 1916. The district also contains an old family cemetery. Listed in the National Register April 5, 1984.
