Trammell Fest at the Trammell House in Marietta!

This is the Trammell House on Trammell Street in Marietta. Col. Leander Newton Trammell had the house built. The colonel led a very interesting and awarding life. He grew up in humble surroundings in Habersham County, in North Georgia, and went to law school, became a lawyer, teacher, an officer in the Confederate Army as a quartermaster, a state legislator and chairman of the State Railway Commission.

In recent years Douglas and Rachel bought the Trammell House and with much research renovated the house back to its original plans, as closely as possible, when the colonel and his family lived in it.*

Now Doug and Rachel are considering having a Trammell Reunion of living Trammell descendants to meet there and see this magnificent house.

Dates and details are being studied.

Are you a Trammell descendant and if so, would you come?

We would appreciate any input on how to round up a bunch of Trammells.

*No outhouse.

Col. L.N. Trammell

When I was at MHS, I took photography my Senior year. Our class went wandering through that neighborhood to specifically to get pics of the great "haunted" house on Trammell St. It was a shambles, covered in vines, holes in the roof, and a rusty 1970ish Impala parked in front. We walked right up the drive to the house snapping great pictures along the way. Imagine our surprise when an ancient looking man appeared in the window and gave us a very haunting stare. Needless to say, even though it was broad daylight we bolted down the drive and up the street back to Whitlock Ave. I got to go in the house right after the restoration was finished & got to tell owners. They thought it was great.

Maybe it was a spirit. Or maybe a homeless guy that found a dry place to lie.

In my early high school years it was a boarding house with Pop Jolly as one of the borders. Pop Jolly was a Marietta Policeman.

Next door, the house on the right as you face the house, Anna's was Anna's grandmother's house.

My first grade teacher was a Mrs. Trammell. I don't remember her first name, don't know anything about her except that I was teacher's pet, which speaks well of Mrs. Trammell.

In your email you proved Mrs. Trammell had good taste with two examples: (1) who she married and (2) who she chose for a pet.
