James Morris Smith, Jr., writes: This house was built for the President of the Wrightsville and Tennille Railroad. My mom interviewed his daughter in the late 1970’s and the daughter told my mom the location of the woods where the timber was cut outside Harrison, Ga. The felled trees were stacked, set out to dry, for three (3) years before being sent to the saw mill in Harrison, Ga. My mom and dad were the high bidder for this house when they purchased it in 1974. In a sealed bid auction their high bid was $16,700.00. I helped them all that summer in 1974 prepare the house for them to move in. I spent one (1) night there in the summer of 1974. Then moved to Boca Raton, FL to study Ocean Engineering. We made thousands and thousands of great, great memories in this beautiful home.
