History - A.M. Mauldin and his wife, a hat maker, were the first owners of the house and their descendants occupied it until 1990. Originally the property occupied an entire city block.
It was typical of a small in-town farm with barns, pastures and vegetable gardens. The house was previously known as the Little Pink Cottage.
The City of Clarkesville acquired the property after the death of Mary Mauldin, and completely refurbished the house and millinery shop. Historic Big Holly Cabin, the Haywood-English family home, was located originally on Ga. Hwy. 115, and was moved to its present site when widening of the highway threatened its location there.
The Mauldin House serves as the City of Clarkesville's Welcome Center and offices for Downtown Development and Gardens and Grounds. The Millinery Shop and Big Holly Cabin are museums for the mountain heritage of the area. The city maintains the beautiful cottage gardens surrounding all.
