The Founders Exhibit is a reassembly of a portion of the first house built in Waycross. “Hilltop” was the 1871 Victorian home of Dr. Daniel and Susan Mobley Lott. Eighteen by thirteen feet in size, the exhibit includes a portion of the front porch facade, entrance hall with staircase, and the parlor. It contains many of the original architectural elements of the house and period furnishings.

The Waycross Town Committee of The National Society of The Colonial Dames of America in the State of Georgia contributed furnishings and assists with maintenance and volunteer activities.
