Inscription.  Built in 1903 by M.D. Carlock Sr. Confederate courier, prominent early - day attorney and political leader. Guests were Governors Hogg and Colquitt and Miss lma Hogg.

In this home the gracious living and entertaining of the old south are not lost, but rather a way of life. Norma Wilkinson acquired the Carlock home after the death of M.D. and Rhea Carlock Jr. in 1996 and meticulously restored the landmark to its early 20th century grandeur.
