Captain Hardy Smith House

The Captain Hardy Smith House is located in Dublin, Georgia. It is the oldest home in Dublin on its original location. Built in 1873 it is located at 307 West Gaines Street in Downtown Dublin.

The restoration of the home included searching for mature pine suitable for cutting the large barge boards with no knots. The ones used came from the Altamaha Swamp around Hindsville, Georgia.

Before the Purchase of the House

The Hardy Smith House was run down and in danger of being torn down. Luckily the Captain Hardy Smith Camp #104 Sons of Confederate Veterans got together and became the lead force in Dublin, Georgia to preserve the home. The purchase of the home from the remaining members of the Smith Family occurred circa 1995.

Lynard and Dynard Sanders twins who did the fine craftsmanship on the restoration pre-purchase. Here they are on top of the roof of the front part of the house with the rebuilt chimney.
