More about the McDaniel-Tichenor House
The McDaniel-Tichenor House is a Victorian style mansion that is a popular venue for weddings and other special events. It was originally the home of the McDaniel family and in the history of the home given on the website, it is noted that McDaniel Street is named for Ira McDaniel, a local businessman whose son, Henry Dickerson-McDaniel went on to become the 52nd governor of Georgia. Henry McDaniel served as a major in the Confederate army and was wounded in 1863. He later went on to marry Hester Felker and live in Monroe in the home. When he died in 1926, he left the home to his two children, Sanders McDaniel and his daughter Gipsy. She and her husband, Edgar Tichenor, bought out her brothers share of the home. They raised their children there and the children, in turn, inherited the house. Emily Tichenor, the wife of one of the Tichenor children, bequeathed the house, with an endowment, for the use and education of the community. It is now owned and operated by a local non-profit, The McDaniel-Tichenor House, Inc.
