A frame schoolhouse, used as a meeting house by the Methodists until construction was completed on their new church, originally stood on this lot. Charles I. Kidd was the first owner.
This Queen Anne, often noted as one of the oldest in Hartwell, was built by attorney Asbury McCurry. His daughter Eloise married Judge Walter Hodges. After his death, she served on Governor Ellis Arnold’s advisory board and as Capitol postmistress during the week, returning here on weekends.
