1. C.C. and Mattie Hughes Cody House Marker
Inscription. Georgia native Claude Carr Cody (1854–1923) worked at Southwestern University for 37 years, serving as a mathematics professor and university administrator. He was known as the “Grand Old Man of Southwestern.” He wed Martha “Mattie” Hughes in 1883, and her father, judge and legislator Thomas P. Hughes, gave them this lot, adjacent to one he had given to another daughter, Lonetta Booty. The Codys completed their home by 1897. The Free Classic Queen Anne house features Doric columns, an octagonal corner bay and a distinctive oval window.
