Merritt House, Hawkinsville

The date of this cottage is unclear, but it’s said to have been built in the early 19th century. Though Hawkinsville was incorporated in 1830, it first prospered in the mid-1840s. My guess would be the house dates to one of those decades.  It was restored in 1989. The dormer and portico appear to be early 20th century additions.
