Built c1840s, this house with original detached kitchen, was part of the Thomas P. Hudson plantation. Thomas Hutson was a Road Commissioner in 1845, along with Robert Craig and John Bankston. He served in the Georgia General Assembly for several years in the 1850s and 1860s. According to the Gwinnett Historical Society, he owned 562 acres in 1860. He also ran the Yellow River Post Office and general store across the street. 2013 Update: The property across the street was part of the Thomas Hudson farm, and it has been made into a PUBLIC PARK, with barn, old post office, and slave quarters
In his "History of Gwinnett County" Vol I, James Flanigan publishes biographical sketches written by Judge Richard D. Winn, beginning in 1871. Judge Winn tells that Mr. Hudson did his best to supply the women and children of the community during the Civil War, when times were hard. He gave away staples to poor people who could not afford to pay for them. He died during the war.
