Significance: Constructed in the Santee-Nacnonchee Valley of Northern Georgia between the late 1860s and WWI, the Hardman Farm Complex illustrates its significance in a variety of ways. The complex itself, includes an 1869 Italianate villa and twenty associated historic structures, as well as a Native American mound, remnants of old Unicoi turnpike, and numerous landscape features. All these features in total add to a unique blend of historic, cultural, and environmental landscapes. It is therefore noteworthy not only for the architectural history of the main house and its related buildings, but for the model the entire complex presents of a thriving 20th century farm overlaying a potent historic and pre-historic Cherokee settlement and how these programs, at their respective times, co-existed harmoniously in the Santee natural environment.
