Description 

Turn of the century home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Daniel Hardy Sanders built this Colonial Revival style masterpiece to overlook his 400 acre plantation. From the columned porch, guests enter into the elegance of a bygone era. Blythewood today stands as a proud tribute to the dedication of two sisters, Otys Merle Kennedy and Mamie Roberts Goldsby.
