Mills House, Hinesville

Built in the late 1880s, this house was the home of the Mills family for most of the 20th century. (This photo was made in February 2010). According to Virginia Fraser Evans’ Liberty County: A Pictorial History, George M. and Flora Fraser Mills moved here with their son Wallace Fraser Mills in 1903. It was recently sold by its present owners and moved to another location. It really is a shame, as Hinesville has very few historic structures, even though it is located in one of the most historic counties in the state. Perhaps the most beautiful grove of oaks in Hinesville is located here, as well, and the word is that they will soon be removed. I hope that is premature and will be reconsidered. Thanks to Della Martin for the identification.
