History

Located in McDonough Georgia, this estate originally consisted of 231 acres and was purchased for $130 by Ezekiel Cloud. Shortly thereafter, Abner Davis of Jones County, Georgia purchased the property from Ezekiel.  Abner built The Hazlehurst House and several small living quarters. Abner passed away in 1834, and his wife sold the property to Col. G. W. Bryan in 1869.

The Hazlehurst House still gleams to this day with so many original features, including hand blown windows, original wooden floors and walls, original fireplaces and mantels.  Mrs. Cornelia Hutton Hazlehurst, the granddaughter of Col. G. W. Bryan, inherited the house and put it on the map for what it is today. She was a fun-loving southern belle who loved to entertain. The house was the hub for parties and social events in the community. If there was a big, fancy event in the town, more often than not it was here at the Hazlehurst House.

The Hazlehurst stayed in the Hutton/Hazlehurst family until 1990s when it was purchased by a developer and his daughter, Priscilla McCammon. Priscilla and her family restored the house as much as they could to its original condition and added a large ballroom that can accommodate approximately 200 guests. Over the years, bits and pieces of the property were sold off and the property now consist of three acres. Finally, the property was purchased by its current proprietor, Felicia Watts, who has made many improvements to create the ambiance and event space that it is today. As fate would have it, it is being utilized today for much of the same purposes for which Mrs. Cornelia used the house: entertaining and grand celebrations!
