Thank you for posting. My great-grandmother was Bessie Glaze that purchased Fort Hill in 1913. My grandfather, Bessie's son, Glenn, purchased the property in front of the plantation property, approximately 50 acres, when he was 12 years old, in 1912, on the courthouse steps. Me and my mother, Gail Thompson, still own the ten acres in front of the property.
