                                                                                                          The oldest house in
Blythewood is the Hoffman House, built in 1855 by George Peter Hoffman, for his bride, Jane Ruff.

The Hoffmans lived in the house
for 48 years until Mr. Hoffman's
death in 1902 and Mrs. Hoffman's death eight months later. They had 12 children who grew up in the house and 2 of these children later had their own families, who remained in Blythewood or the Cedar Creek area. 

The original house
had three front rooms which still have the hand-beveled tongue and groove heart-pine timber floors, walls and ceilings. Two wings were added later, which can still be seen with its wide, somewhat curved hallway running through the house.

Several other families lived in the house after the Hoffmans.  It was put on the National Register after being restored by the Brantleys in 1978. The house has been an antique shop, a venue for parties and receptions, a flower shop and then in 2000 was again refurbished and became
Town Hall. 

We are now making small repairs to the house and having it painted. After the renovations, you are welcome to come in to see the historic Hoffman House, with beautiful Doko Manor next door.
