Twitty-Bruce House, Circa 1860, Jefferson

Often cited as one of Jefferson’s finest Greek Revival houses, I believe this originated as a Plantation Plain and was later modified. Either way, it’s a great house and a Jefferson landmark. It’s presently home to a beauty salon.

Dr. William B. J. Hardman House, 1897, Commerce

As best I can determine from limited sources, this was the home of Dr. William Benjamin Johnson Hardman (23 November 1822-21 August 1904), the father of Governor Lamartine Hardman, who was also a physician. The elder Dr. Hardman was one of the most prominent and best-known citizens Harmony Grove (changed to Commerce in 1909).  Dr. Hardman served in Deadwyler’s Company, 4th Georgia Cavalry.

Information about the history of this massive house is hard to locate, but for a time it was known as the “Wallpaper School” for a later use. Now it seems to be simply known as “The White Columns”. Whatever its background, this 6000-square-foot stunner is presently for sale.
