This structure was built in 1859. It was located near the county jail on the Court House Square and furnished shelter and sleeping quarters for a number of Sherman’s men when he “marched through Georgia.” Names of many of those who encamped in the building, during the War Between the States, were found written on the inside walls when the building was repaired some years ago. In its final phase stucco had been put on the original frame structure. It has since been torn down.(Used by permission History of Dade County Georgia, Retired Senior Volunteer Program, 1981)
