    Built in 1853 in the Gothic Revival style, this house is most famous for being the headquarters of Union General Sherman after making his famous "March to the Sea" from Atlanta towards the end of the Civil War. It has elaborate iron work outside along with cut-glass windows that protrude from the outside walls giving light from 3 sides.
    It now belongs to St. John's Episcopal Church but tours are given daily for a fee.
