The original house belonged to Abner McGehee of the Goosepond Colony which was located on the north and south sides of the Broad River. Virginians who located in the Broad River Valley of Georgia had settled Goosepond Colony. Abner McGehee later moved to Alabama around 1820 and the home's next owner was Sheldon White, thus it became known as the McGehee-White Home.

In 1970 the home which was in a state of decay, was dismantled piece by piece, numbered, and reassembled at its current location through the efforts of John Wright Boyd, Sr. who purchased the home. Supplemental building materials came from the William Scott home, of the 1785-1795 period which had been located in the Quaker Colony of Wrightsboro and additional materials from Govenor George R. Gilmer's circa 1830 Lexington, Georgia home.
