Much of the artwork adorning the Kirby House walls is by Joe Coggins. A native Atlantan living near Madison, Georgia, Coggins is a talented photographer, printer, framer and painter.   Member of the Madison Artists Guild, Coggins has painted professionally and taught art across the Southeast for over 20 years. His work has been displayed in galleries and art shows in Atlantic Beach, Jacksonville Beach, St. Augustine, Greensboro and Jekyll Island. You can find his work locally at Madison Interiors Market, adorning the walls at Kirby House and on his website here.


Owner and proprietor of Madison Interiors Market, Kirby House has Jane Royal to thank for many, many thoughtful details and finishing touches.

everett ROYAL

Owner and proprietor of the James Madison Inn, we have Everett Royal to thank for the design and build of Kirby House in 1996 when Everett transformed his impressions of a special Greek Revival house into buildable plans. The result was a historically inspired home (the now Kirby House) designed for modern living.
