1. The Holliday-Dorsey-Fife House Marker
Inscription. Built in 1855 by Doctor John Stiles Holliday this house has ties to important Georgia personalities such as the legendary “"Doc” Holliday, Georgia Governor Hugh Manson Dorsey, and famous author Margaret Mitchell. In the mid 1850’s the house served as a dormitory for the Fayetteville Academy, which gained recognition in Gone With the Wind. In February 1861, a Confederate flag was made here for the Fayette Rifle Grays, the first company to be raised in the county for the Confederacy. Former owner Solomon Dawson Dorsey served as an officer for the State Militia during the war. Robert E. Lee Fife and son Cecil, the last owner, served in local politics from 1903 to 1954.
