Bibb County’s oldest house is now this areas premier wedding venue



Teresa Suttle doesn’t know who Bessie, Della S. and Evalee were, only that their names and a date — Feb. 15, 1892 — are etched on a windowpane in her office.

It’s a little surprising that the glass is intact 124 years after the names were scratched on it, but maybe not so much when you consider that the window is in a house built in 1835. The Oaks in Centreville is the oldest house in Bibb County, said Suttle, who bought it in 2012.
Dr. David R. Boyd and his wife, Teresa Coleman, built the house on 80 acres. After her husband’s death, Teresa married George Wood Howard. The house stayed in the family until the death of the Howards’ great-great-granddaughter, Emily Howard Cooper Cleveland.
