Previous Farm  of Gen. John B. Gordon

Gen. Gordon was not living in this home when he died. He died in Florida.


 

The Taylor County Historical-Genealogy society is raising money to move the old home of Gen. John B. Gordon in Taylor County Georgia.  I have been told this is the old Mitchell home. 

If anyone has the complete history of this house please contact
.

To assist, make donations, or for information please contact  John R. Adams, Chairman - 478-923-1525, Taylor County Historical-Genealogical Society.
