Charters Smith House

Colonel William Arthur Charters purchased this lot from Samuel C. Dunlap in 1902, completed construction of the Charters Smith House by 1906. Before his move to Gainesville, Mr. Charters lived and work in Dahlonega as a lawyer with Colonel W.P. Price, a former congressman and the founder of North Georgia College.

Isabelle, daughter of the Charters, and her husband, Sidney O. Smith, moved into the home in 1930. The Smiths had four children; Ms. Hugh Embry, Mrs. William Wallace, Mrs. June Smith Woodruff, and Judge Sidney O. Smith Jr.

This stunning Neoclassical Revival home features Tuscan columns and oval leaded glass windows.
