This southern home, c. 1853, is named for damage sustained during the Civil War. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it is an example of authentic Greek Revival architecture containing fine period furnishings. The house is also the repository for the Founders' parlors of Alpha Delta Pi and Phi Mu societies, recreated from Wesleyan College, where they began in 1851 and 1852.
At the rear of the Cannonball House stands a quaint two-story kitchen house built of hand-molded brick. The upper level of this house formerly served as quarters for the house servants. Few structures of this type remain in the South today.
A Civil War military collection features officers' uniforms, company flags, swords, and guns used by Georgians during the War Between the States.
