On his infamous March to the Sea, General William Tecumseh Sherman headquartered in this house on 26 November 1864. Built by Nathan Haynes, the house has had many owners, William Gainer Brown most notable among them. Commanding a high ridge overlooking the beautiful North Harris Street neighborhood it’s quite imposing from any angle and was known for a time as Woodland Terrace. Today, it’s home to the Washington County Historical Society and is open to the public as the Brown House Museum.
