The large brick residence built in 1857 by Samuel House (1798-1873) was a prominent landmark during military operations by Federal forces on the Atlanta front in July, 1864.

Cox's division of Schofield's 23rd A.C. reached this vicinity July 18; Schofield, in person, with the div. was here joined by Sherman who established headquarters at the house.

Cox's div. camped on the plantation; Hascall's div., having traversed Cox's line of march via Old Cross Keys, turned S.W. on Peachtree Rd. to Goodwin's, then S.E. to Johnston's Mill on N. Fork Peachtree Creek where it camped.
