The Malone-Harrison-Hines House, c. 1885

369 Kennesaw Avenue

 

The Malone-Harrison-Hines House PhotoThis house was built c. 1880 as a large Victorian-style house with circular porches. After several owners lived here for short periods of time, Dr. J.D. Malone, a prominent Marietta physician, purchased it. Dr. Malone helped establish and was president of the Soldiers Welfare Commission in Marietta during World War I He raised his family in the home and upon his death in the 1930’s his daughter, Mrs. George Harrison, acquired the property. She sold the house in 1975 to Justice Harris Hines of the Georgia Supreme Court and his wife, Helen. The Hines raised their two children in the house where they have lived for 38 years.

 

In the early 1930’s, a fire destroyed the second story and the house was redesigned by well-known Atlanta & Marietta architect, Montgomery Anderson. Anderson undertook major changes to the construction of the home by altering the roofline and removing the porches giving the house a more “Williamsburg” or cottage-style look. The first floor of the house was not damaged in the fire and retains the original heart pine floors, stairwell, Victorian millwork and large central hall. The house also contains four fireplaces and two bay rooms. In the 1980’s, the present owners took the second story which had become an attic and added an additional bedroom, bath and den area. They also remodeled the kitchen and back porch area.
