The McDaniel-Tichenor House was the residence of Henry Dickerson-McDaniel graduated at Mercer and soon afterwards, was admitted to the bar. He then attended the state?s secession convention as the youngest delegate. Serving as a major in the Confederate army, Henry was wounded in Maryland in 1863. The remaining duration of the war was spent by Henry in a Northern prison camp.

Governor McDaniel retired from his law practice in Monroe after serving the state. It was here where he became the town?s wealthiest citizen through shrew investment in railroads and local cotton mills. He was also known for serving as a trustee for the University of Georgia for 38 years.

The house was left to his 2 children, Atlanta Lawyer Sanders McDaniel and daughter Gipsy, who bought Sander?s share of the house for $6,250 with her husband, Edgar Tichenor. At that time, Edgar was already established in Monroe as the president of the Walton Mill Company, and chairman of the local board education.

After their deaths, Edgar and Gipsy?s children, Henry and Hester, inherited the house. Henry bought Hester?s share and used it as a residence with his wide, the former Emily Burney. Emily bequeathed the house to the community for education purposes.
