This High Victorian Renaissance Revival gem, known as the Hanna-McKinley House, was built in 1883. Influential industrialist and Ohio Senator Mark Hanna of Cleveland, Ohio, rented this home as his winter retreat. Politically powerful, Mr. Hanna invited the southern Republican delegates to his home for a “vacation.” They met in the sun parlor (on the right side of the house) and discussed William McKinley as the next Republican candidate for President. McKinley promised to visit Thomasville if elected, and did, prompting local citizens to humorously refer to him as “the only President who ever kept his word about anything!”
