Monroe, GA – Walton County – The McDaniel-Tichenor House was built in 1887 for former Governor Henry D. McDaniel (served 1883-1886). Interestingly, he wouldn’t recognize the house as it is today. It was built in the Italianate style, complete with a front tower. It was changed in 1930 to a Neo-Classical Style that we see today.
There is a full inside tour of the house available here that is really well done. Inside the McDaniel-Tichenor House, the governor’s library remains intact in the house – this home only had one family live in it throughout its years as a private residence.
Doing a little more research, discovered that he was one of the 3 founders of the Walton Cotton Mill Company, which opened around 1900. As with so many mills, it was closed….but is now an antique mall, office space etc.
Just a few more photos from my time walking around this house. What a pretty home!
Naturally I had to go check out the well here! Pretty fancy looking, huh?
As always, appreciate you coming along and taking a look at this beautiful home!
