Former W.H. Norwood Home

This beautiful Italianate style, Georgia cottage was built at 1006 Main Street in 1874 by W. H. Norwood. The balustrade, columns, and molding on the exterior are original to the house. W. H. Norwood was “killed” and left for dead twice during the Civil War and twice more thought to be lost, killed, or captured. He often said that his tombstone should have five dates of death. The house was moved in 1962 to its present location and later became offices for Forest Hill Properties.
