This Craftsman style cottage was built for Teasley and Ruth Summerour Upshaw in 1925. The simple two bedroom, one bath home features 10 foot ceilings, heart pine floors with a large living room, dining room and kitchen. The interior has seen little change since construction. Mrs. Upshaw taught sixth grade at Milton school while Mr. “Tater Teas” operated a potato curing business and coal delivery business.Three potato storage houses stood on the property facing Upshaw Drive. Teasley Upshaw also served several times as Alpharetta mayor. There have been only two family owners in the 88 year history of the house - the Upshaws and Kathryn and Garland “Bulldog” Williams.
