Pope Hill, Circa 1830, Wrens

The community of Pope Hill was the area around which present-day Wrens was established, around the time of the American Revolution.  It’s sometimes referred to as Pope’s Crossroads.

Though I haven’t been able to locate much information about the Popes, I assume they were the first settlers of the area. I’ve also yet to establish a coonnection to this house, but I’ve learned that it was built sometime around 1830. Double chimneys flank both ends of the house. I’ll update as I learn more.

A curious stone marker, placed by Carrie in memory of A. J. & Nancy Williams, stands in the front yard.

    I enjoyed the post on Wrens, Ga. and especially liked the Pope Hill post. I will look forward to more information on the Pope family, the house and the monument on the front lawn. Who were the Williams couple and what connection did they have to the house or Pope Hill ? Just curious !
