Significance: This vernacular dwelling with Greek Revival-style features retains its ca. 1850s central hallway design and use of materials. The building has been altered, but the changes are concentrated mostly at the rear. The dwelling appears to be one of the Powder Springs community's oldest buildings and survives from a period of rapid settlement and agricultural development that shaped Cobb County during the nineteenth century and impacted it into the early twentieth century. While the dwelling is indicative of the county's rural past, the surrounding area is fast changing due to increased suburbanization and commercial development.
Survey number: HABS GA-2327
Building/structure dates: after 1850 Initial Construction
