This lovely modified Greek Revival style house was built in 1924. It was thought to be a wedding gift to Dr. George F. Hagood, Jr and his bride, Sallie, from his father, Dr. George F. Hagood, Sr., who lived next door. The Hagood's are an old Marietta family…many of whom were doctors. The Hagoods lived in the home for over 30 years. There were three subsequent owners who lived there briefly, but Mark and Ginny McNabb, the current owners, fell in love with the property, purchased it in 1984, and raised five children in the home.
The house was originally a one and a half story "shot gun" cottage. It underwent a complete transformation from 2003-2005, when a second story and a front porch were added. It took three years for the entire project to be completed. A south Georgia iron worker forged the balcony off the master bedroom. The original footprint of the home remains intact and as much as was possible from the original house was incorporated. The heart pine floors in the three front rooms are original, as are four of the six fireplaces. The stairway came from another home south of the Square.
The McNabbs have an extensive library and the house is filled with antiques. The library desk came from Charleston and the desk in the boys' bedroom was made by carpenters of the Western and Atlantic Railroad. You'll see many oriental pieces throughout the house collected by Mrs. McNabb's mother on her travels to China.
