Pitts House and Dairy
Backstory and Context
The Pitts House was once part of a dairy farm on the outskirts of Atlanta. The house was built in 1919
for Thomas Pitts who ran a popular soda fountain and cigar store in Atlanta at Five Points. The ice cream for the soda fountain came from his dairy farm.
The farm, including the house, water well, water well, cow barn, garage, two cottages, and ten acres of pasture was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.
The Pitts House is considered to be endangered by the Atlanta Preservation Center. The property was in the process of being subdivided in 2008. The property owner filed for bankruptcy in 2011, however.
