Fletcher H. Henderson (1857-1943), pioneer Georgia educator, built this home in 1888 and lived here until his death. Principal of nearby Howard Normal-Randolph School 1880-1942, his contributions to education won professional recognition and enriched the lives of a multitude of students. Fletcher Henderson, Jr. (1897-1952), born here, developed one of the earliest "Big Bands." A pianist and composer, he was a pioneer in "swing" music. He was Down Beat Magazine Arranger of Year in 1938 and 1940. The Hendersons are buried near here in Greenwood Cemetery.
