History of the house

The property was once home to one of the few intact 19th-century plantations, and it was built by a Virginia family named Mason, according to Telegraph records.

William Wadley, president of the Central Georgia Railroad Company and former Confederate superintendent of railways, purchased the house in 1873 with over 1,300 acres of land. The purchase price was $ 6,410.

After part of the land was sold after Wadley’s death in 1882, the remaining house and property were given the name Great Hill Place.

The property was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in the 1970s, and a group of Macon investors bought the house in 1974 for just over $ 1.2 million.

The original mansion, which was a 22-room, two-story structure, was burnt down on January 31, 1982. The current mansion was built in 2002 with seven bedrooms and 10 full bathrooms.
