A Photo A Week Challenge: From Below

Beneath the floating staircase at the historic Chief Vann House in Murray County, Georgia

Cantilevered staircase at Vann House

The staircase is one of the oldest examples of cantilevered construction in Georgia.  Built during an 1818 renovation of the house,  it is said to be “floating” because the second landing of the staircase sits over the first floor hall with no visible supports.  This creates the illusion that the landing is hanging or floating in midair.
