Text of marker: "FELTON HOME. Dr. William H. Felton and his wife, Rebecca Latimer, lived from 1853 until 1905 in the house east of this marker. A physician, minister and noted orator, Dr. Felton was the leader of the Independent Revolt from the State Democratic Party in the 1870's and won three spectacular Congressional campaigns. Mrs. Felton's appointment in 1922 at the age of 87, as the first woman U.S. Senator climaxed a long career in which she had gained wide recognition as an author, newspaper columnist, and crusader for women's rights. 008-14 GEORGIA HISTORICAL COMMISSION 1953"
