B. F. Shirley Home· c. 1910 Marker  


This Queen Anne home was built by Mr. Benjamin Franklin Shirley using a Sears Roebuck house pattern. Features include a nine-room interior, a veranda, and exterior stairs leading to the second floor. Renovations have been made, but the original building structure has not been altered. The Alpharetta Women's Club purchased the house in 1962 and paid the bank loan with funds raised from community projects.
