Carrie Dyer House (c. 1851)

(Linda & Wes Hardwick)

This is our first Charm Debut this year, and what a stellar one it is!

This is a true antebellum home. There are two homes nearby of the same style and architecture. One of the homes is where William Tecumseh Sherman strayed during the Civil War. The six-over-six windows were used in homes from 1830-1860. 

Carrie Dyer Home has the distinction of being the second-oldest women’s club in Georgia. The home was used as a community center and hosted lectures, special events and dances, and served as a meeting place for local organizations, such as the Girl Scouts of the USA. The club operated a library in the home until it joined the Cobb County Public Library System in 1963. The new library was constructed a short distance from the house. 

This house is an important piece of Acworth history. Thank you to our Mayor Tommy Allegood for seeing that this piece was restored and saved.
