The Hobson House in Bowling Green
By Jeannette Holland Austin
The construction of the home of Colonel Atwood Gaines and Juliet Van Meter Hobson was begun in 1857, only to be interrupted by the Civil War. Hobson was a Union sympathizer and offered the home for use as a Confederate munitions depot rather than see it destroyed. It was not completed until 1872. It is located at 1100 West Main Street in Hobson Grove Park.
