Smith House, 1860, Hawkinsville

This was built as a four-room house just before the Civil War. The second floor was added soon thereafter. When a fire destroyed Hawkinsville’s only hotel in the 1880s, a 22-room addition was added to this house and it was known as the Octagon Hotel, for its octagonal porch. The hotel addition was removed in 1946 and the house remodeled and restored. It remains in the Smith family today.

        10-4. Looks a lot like the house my mother was born in but this isn’t it. Thanks, Brian.
