This charming farmhouse style home, with wrap-around front porch, was built in 1905 by John C. Cogburn. The Cogburn family lived in the house until 1933, when Mrs. Minnie Cogburn sold it shortly after his death. Mr. Cogburn was a lifelong Marietta resident and a well-known merchant. He owned the John C. Cogburn Co. Store for Men. Mrs. Cogburn was very prominent in social circles in Marietta and once won a car in the Marietta Journal subscription contest.
The house was sold to Homer L. and Bertha Hyde. He was the proprietor of Homer L. Hyde, Flour, Feed & Groceries on Lawrence Street. After Mr. Hyde's death in 1962, the house passed to his children, Harry L. & Lillian Hyde. Harry Hyde ran unsuccessfully for the U. S. Senate against Richard Russell in 1966. The Hydes continued to live in the home until Lillian sold it to the current owners, Mark and Ann Roland in 2001.
