A 1900 house near Smyrna has been placed on the Cobb County Register of Historic Places.

The Cobb County Board of Commissioners decided Sept. 25 to designate the Brown-Loudermilk-Corey House - on about an acre at 2215 Cooper Lake Road - as an historic property.

Their decision came at the request of house owners Larry and Sherry Corey and upon the recommendation of the Cobb County Historic Preservation Commission.

Now any exterior changes to the house must be approved by the county’s Historic Preservation Commission.

The house is “an excellent example of a Queen Anne-style cottage built about 1900” with about six others like it in Cobb, according to the county resolution.

“Sitting on top of a slight hill, the house has a panoramic view of the Atlanta skyline,” added the county’s property description.

“The house retains much of its original floor plan of a central hall with rooms on either side with original interior features such as heart pine floors, coal-burning fireplaces and plaster walls.”

Also, a large white oak tree on the property is estimated to be more than 200 years old.
