Janet Hodges Tucker writes: This house was built by J.L Ladson. Every brick was handmade, and had Mr. Ladson’s initials on each. All of the steps and window sills are North Georgia graniite, mined specifically for this house. Every room, except the kitchen and a luggage room upstairs has a fireplace, made of North Georgia marble – again, mined for this house. The house was built from the basement up, with all the interior walls being solid brick. I lived here from 1950 -1985.
