The Willie House in Louisville, Georgia was built in 1904 by J.D. Chase, a local carpenter. The property it was built upon was the site of the Louisville Hotel which burned down on December 14, 1899. The owner of the hotel used the insurance payout of $1,000 to finance the construction of the new residence.
