"William Shivers arrived in this area of Georgia from Virginia for a visit with his uncle in the early 1800's.  He fell in love with the area as well as a local woman named Virginia Pitt, and decided to remain.  He purchased 6,600 acres of land on the west side of the Ogeechee River and built a grist mill. After marrying Ms. Pitt, he built his home - a federal style house, with both front, back, left and right sides equal. For the architects to achieve this proved challenging and resulted in some very creative features.
