Property Description

Welcome to the Warren House, a distinguished historic property offering a unique opportunity for commercial use, located at 102 W Mimosa Drive, Jonesboro, GA 30236. Built in 1840 by Guy L. Warren, agent of the Macon & Western Railroad and one of Jonesboro's very first town commissioners, this remarkable estate sits on 2 acres of land and is zoned for commercial office-industrial, making it an ideal investment for a variety of business ventures. Spanning 4710 square feet, this exquisite property boasts 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and 9 original fireplaces. The estate also includes a picturesque courtyard and coach houses, offering additional space for office or event use.

The Warren House holds a significant place in the history of Jonesboro, having served as a field hospital and headquarters for both Confederate and Union forces during the Civil War. Repairs by Sheriff Adamson in 1936 revealed the names of Union soldiers who occupied the home, including Robert Sullivan, James B. Washington, John B. Wuilell Saler, George W. Harding, and Thomas, Chief-in-Command of the 1st Division. These names serve as a poignant reminder of the home's role in providing refuge and care to soldiers during this tumultuous period. When the writing was discovered in 1936, most of the breastworks built for the battle were still visible north and south of The Warren House. The Adamson children recalled that on rainy days they could collect a bucket of the minie balls used during the fighting. These existed until 1940 when they were plowed under.

In addition to its historical significance, the Warren House has ties to literary history. Margaret Mitchell, author of Gone With the Wind, visited the house several times in 1935 and 1936. The rich antebellum and Civil War legend of the house may have contributed in some way to her novel, which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1937.

Today, the Warren House stands as a testament to resilience and fortitude, with bullet holes lodged in the walls and cannonballs scattered across the yard serving as evidence of the proximity of heavy fighting. Recognized by the Georgia Historical Commission in 1955, this property holds a special place in the heart of Jonesboro's history. In addition to its rich historical significance, the Warren House offers modern amenities and conveniences, making it an ideal setting for a wide range of commercial activities.

Located in the heart of Jonesboro, the property is surrounded by amenities and attractions, including the Patrick R. Cleburne Confederate Cemetery, offering a glimpse into the area's rich heritage. Don't miss your chance to own a piece of history and create your own legacy. Schedule a private tour of the Warren House today and experience the timeless elegance and unmatched charm of this historic gem.
