A murder has happened in this home and there is newspaper articles online with more information regarding what happen here. Judson Hyatt was shot and killed here by Sheriff Mcallister. It's been said that Mcallister had gone to the hotel drunk one evening and heard some noise coming from Judson's room, As he went upstairs he went and tried the knob but it was fastened. Later on Judson called for the bell boy in which Mcallister decided to go back up there and then he pushed the door open and after exchanging some words with Judson he shot him down. Judson was found with a pistol near his right hand making it look like he shot himself. Henry Harris and Frank Houser were the locals investigators and after investigating they went before a judge and did ask for a warrant for the arrest of Sheriff Mcallister. Judge Scott refused to issue the warrant, come to find out he was good friends with the Sheriff because he was related to him by marriage.

March 7th the story told before the corners jury was that the brother's of Mcallister heard what seemed to be a pistol, So they rushed to see what happen and there they found Judson laying on the ground in his room at The Cooks House with the pistol in his right hand and taking his last gasp and Mcallister was standing near him holding a pistol with one empty chamber. The verdict of the jury said the shooting was in self defense.

A legend endures concerning General John Dill, one of the prominent leaders during the Creek Indian wars. It seems that during a raid, some Creeks captured a Mrs. Stuart and killed her husband. They discarded as worthless the paper money they found. Mrs. Stuart gathered the money and pinned it to her petticoats during her captivity. When finally rescued, she was wealthy, thanks to her resourcefulness. She was introduced to and later married General Dill. The elegant house they built in Fort Gaines still stands
