Robertson Thurmond House

Built by A.A. Marshall between 1881 and 1888, this home was bought by T.H. Robertson in 1899 and later Charles J. Thurmond in 1943. The home has passed through many hands including Willie Cheatham, T.H. Robertson, W.H. Burt, Dr. H.L. Rudolph, Mrs. Annie L. Beadle, and Charles J. Thurmond, who did extensive remodeling. In 1965, the house was purchased by the Gainesville District North Georgia Conference of the Methodist Church and used as a district parsonage. Rev. Robert Bridges, district superintendent in Gainesville, lived there with his wife.
