The Tullie Smith House is a small plantation or farm house, built circa 1840 by Robert Smith. It is typical of the usual kind of plantation houses owned by small farmers. The house was located in Dekalb Co., Georgia on 800 acres. The last Smith to occupy the property was Tullie, the great-great-granddaughter of Robert. The house was moved in 1969 to its present site in Atlanta on the grounds of Swan House.
