Photographers don’t usually capture the underside of a staircase, but my point of view came from the historic significance of this one.  Perhaps the earliest example of a cantilevered or floating staircase in Georgia, it is found in the historic Chief Vann House which was constructed in 1803 and 1804 by James Vann.  Vann was not only a Cherokee chief but was also the wealthiest businessman in the Cherokee Nation.
