About the Stanley House...

The title on the lot dates back to 1891 when A.C. Heggie was the owner.   The magnificent mansion that is now the Stanley House was built in 1895 by lumber executive W.P. Stevens as the summer residence of the favorite uncle and aunt of President Woodrow Wilson,  Dr. James Woodrow and his wife, Felixina Baker.   Dr. Woodrow was the first professor with a Ph.D. in the state of Georgia and a Presbyterian minister. He and "Felie" were married in Dalton, Georgia by Woodrow Wilson's father, also a Presbyterian minister.

Dr. Woodrow was the subject of controversy in his time as he believed and taught a modified version of evolution.  This excerpt is from the historical archives of the Marietta Daily Journal, August 19, 1886: The trial of Dr. James Woodrow by the charges proferred by Dr. William Adains, of Augusta Presbytory, began in Bethany, Green County on the 16th.
