This crown jewel of Sandersville’s residential historic district was designed by architect Norman Askins for H. E. Cohen, founder and first president of the Sandersville Railroad. Judge Charles Thigpen and Governor Thomas Hardwick also lived here before it was purchased by Benjamin James Tarbutton in 1924.

It’s my guess that this house is the work of Charles E. Choate; it has a very close relative in the nearby Brantley-Haygood House. It likely dates to the late 1890s.
