Theothilus J. Smith built this plantation house in in 1848 and named it Glen Mary for his wife, Mary Gonder Smith. Due to financial losses incurred during the Civil War, the plantation was sold to General Ethan Allen Hitchcock. Hitchcock was the Vermont-born grandson of Revolutionary War hero General Ethan Allen. Albany-born architect Edward Vason Jones was responsible for restorations done to the home in the 1960s. Today, this Georgia gem is owned by Preservation America Trust.
