Harville Farms honored for 100 years of family farming
Bulloch landmark recognized for Georgia Centennial Farm Award
The Bulloch County Historical Society recently installed a new marker at the sight of the Harville House on Harville Road. Several family members attended Saturday's dedication ceremony for the home, originally built in 1894, which served as the homestead for a farm that sustained 10 families. The house's builder, Keebler Henry Harville, was the first to sell peanuts commercially in Bulloch County.
One of Bulloch County's oldest farms, a landmark graced by an enormous family home that is known for its intriguing history and legendary hauntings, was recognized Friday during the 22nd annual Georgia Centennial Farm Awards Ceremony at the Georgia National Fair in Perry. Harville Family Farms was one of 13 farms recognized for the Centennial Family Farm Award, which recognizes farms owned by members of the same family for 100 years or more that are not listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Tommy Harville, who owns Harville Family Farms, said he has lived on the property all his life and has never seen evidence of any haunting at the renowned Harville House, the stately, unique mansion his great-grandfather built.
