Built about 1874-75 for George Royal Sibley, a cotton broker and son of Josiah Sibley, founder of Sibley Mill. It was subsequently the home of his daughter, Alice, wife of Asbury Hull, an Augusta cotton factor with the firm of Hull and Tobin and President of Augusta Cotton & Compress Company. Originally a simple ell-shaped house, there have been a number of remodelings as it evolved from a single family home to an apartment house. The floor plan and dormer suggest that it was once a Queen Anne style house. The front porch was enclosed to add more rooms for rental purposes in the 20th Century.
