The Governor L. G. Hardman House is a historic house located at 208 Elm Street in Commerce, Georgia. It is locally significant architecturally as a "fine example" in Georgia of the Mediterranean Revival style of architecture applied to a residence.[2]

Description and history[edit]

Completed in 1921, the house was designed by architect Leroy C. Hart in Mediterranean Revival architecture, one variety of Late 19th and 20th Century Revivals architecture.[2] It was originally built as the home of Georgia governor Lamartine Griffin Hardman (1856–1937), who governed during 1927-1931. The 5-acre (2.0 ha) listing included two contributing buildings.[1] It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on June 16, 1988.[1]
