Platt Brooks Estate has been in the Brooks family for a hundred years. Built around 1823, the Federal style home has been long considered one of the finest homes in Lexington, Ga. Judge George F. Platt, one of the most influential citizens of the county, and wife Mary Elizabeth Smith owned the house for 63 years. Ownership of the house changed hands five times before R.F. Brooks, Sr., purchased the home in 1921. Charles Clifford “Chuck” Brooks, Jr., the grandson of R.F. Brooks, Sr., received ownership of the home from his paternal grandmother and has done extensive historical research to return The Platt Brooks house to its rightful place as one of the shining jewels of Church Street in Lexington. In 2019, the family opened the estate for private weddings and events.
