Excerpt from the National Register nomination:
Marshall James Hatcher of Marshallville, Georgia, cane to Macon, purchased a lot on Georgia Avenue from the Central Georgia Bank, and in 1880 built the brick house …

According to his grandson, "Marshall James Hatcher was a very versatile man." At one time he owned property, which is now Ocmulgee National Monument, where he operated a dairy. He also invented several pieces of agricultural equipment and manufactured them in a plant which later became the Schofield Iron Works. Mr. Hatcher also had other interests, including a plantation in Macon County.
