About The Daughtry House
Just after the Civil War ended, and before Commerce was even called Commerce, the Daughtry House stood for traditional Southern elegance and sophistication. Built in 1870, the Daughtry House was home to some of Commerce’s leading citizens and even a governor of the State of Georgia called it home. A prominent local merchant who owned a store in downtown Commerce, Robert Leroy Daughtry, lived here with his family until his death in 1927, and his wife lived here until her death in 1945. His daughter Clifford was married in the front parlor of this home and it was the talk of Commerce. Mr. Daughtry is buried in Gray Lawn cemetery today, not far from his beloved home place. A picture of the family taken in 1907 can be seen in the front parlor as a testament to how life in Commerce once was.
