Couple remodels Guy E. Paine home on Hillcrest Avenue in Macon

A young Couple is taking on the challenge of giving an old house new life. The home at 2733 Hillcrest Avenue has sat there for over 100 years. It was deemed as one of Macon's Fading Five – a list of the city's endangered historic properties that leaders say should be preserved, curated by Historic Macon Foundation. Located in the Cherokee Heights district, the first owner of the home was a man named Guy E. Paine who was recruited from Chicago to work for the Penn Mutual Insurance Company. The house foreclosed twice since 1988. Overgrown with weeds, the Italian Renaissance-style home sat vacant for over 20 years. Rachelle Wilson and Trent Mosely decided to change that.
