Captain Hardy B. Smith, Confederate hero and prominent local citizen, completed this example of Carpenter Gothic architecture in 1873. The home, the oldest in Dublin still on its original site, is located at what was once a small farm. The two-story wooden house, a perfect example of Gothic rural-style architecture, is being carefully restored by owner, John C. Hall. Part of Dublin's Downtown Historic Architectural Tour, the Captain Smith Hardy House features a two-sided embossed historical marker sponsored by the Georgia Civil War Commission. The western face of the marker, which features a likeness of Captain Smith, tells the biographical story of Laurens County's most public spirited citizens of the post Civil War era. The eastern face, which features a bust of Captain Smith, details the history of the home.
