James Gordon started construction on this family home in 1840 and completed it seven years later.

During the War Between the States, the main house was used by the Union Army for General Rosecrans Headquarters just before the Battle of Chickamauga.  During the battle, the house became a hospital.

The City of Chickamauga owns the Mansion and its grounds, renting out the site for weddings and special events.
