This home was built in 1852 by Hiram Douglass, a well-known minister in the Tennessee and Georgia area. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Hiram Douglass was a minister of the Cumberland Presbyterian denomination from 1832 until 1865. According to the Cumberland Presbyterian historical records, he was described “as a ’Circuit Ridin’ Preacher.’ Douglass rode across the mountains of northwest Georgia and Southeast Tennessee with a rifle on his saddle and a Bible in his hand.” His circuit went from Greeneville, TN to Cassville, GA
In the 1840s, Hiram purchased a small farm near Ooltewah. He began acquiring property and by 1865, he had 200 acres. In order to keep the farm producing, he purchased slaves. They worked the farm while he preached the gospel. In fact, the bricks used to construct the house were hand made by his slaves.
When the Civil War began, Douglass was a Confederate supporter. After his sons were captured during the Battle for Chickamauga, he visited General George Thomas. After this meeting, Hiram’s sons were set free and Hiram became a staunch Unionist. He set all of his slaves free and began preaching against slavery. Due to his change in beliefs, his life was threatened many times.
