Laodicea Langston (born 14 May 1766), also known by the name Dicey, was a Patriot.  Her acts of bravery during the period have led to her being regarded as a “heroine” of the war. A children’s book “Rebel with a Cause: The Daring Adventure of Dicey Langston, Girl Spy of the American Revolution” tells the tales of Dicey. A marker has been placed at the site of Dicey’s home on Tigerville Road.  Coordinates– N 34 58 923 W 082 24 213

Baldree, a local realtor, donated the building to the Historical Society on the condition that it be relocated. The building is now at 3 Edwards St.
