Grace Towns Hamilton was the first African American woman elected to the Georgia General Assembly. She grew up and lived her life near Atlanta University Center, which is where her home is located. The house, across the street from the historic Herndon Home, is a large four-square brick building with a full-width front porch. It is currently in a state of significant disrepair and is in need of restoration.
