Cobb Register Nomination: Hill-Crowe-White House
Local property nominated to be considered for the Cobb Register of Historic Places
The Hill-Crowe-White House is up for consideration by the Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) on Monday, November 12, 2018 at 6PM. HPC public hearing meetings are held at 100 Cherokee Street, 2nd Floor, Marietta, GA. If this nomination is approved by the HPC, the item will go forward as a recommendation to the Board of Commissioners at the Regular BOC Meeting on Tuesday, November 27, 2018 at 7PM.
This historic place sits on 1.4 acres located on the east side of Old Lost Mountain Road - just south of the intersection of Old Lost Mountain Road and Gaydon Road.
The Hill-Crowe-White House is an excellent example of a New South Cottage type farmhouse, in a more rural area of Cobb County. The potato house is also an excellent example of an ancillary use that adds to the historical relevance of the house. The house has significant ties to Cobb County’s agricultural past. The house was part of a working 60-acre farm that remained in two connected families for more than 70 years. It is also an example of efforts at the national level during the Great Depression to assist long-term tenant farmers in becoming successful landowners.
