History of Fox Hill
Much of the area's surrounding land (up to Highway 141) had been in the Medlock family since before the Civil War. When Bishop Smith married Susie Medlock, the Medlock family gave the newlyweds all the land that encompasses Fox Hill, the Orchards, Peachtree Plantation, and Jones Bridge Park as a wedding gift. Corn, cotton and row crops were always planted on the land until the 1960s when the land was rented out. Cattle and horses then replaced the crops. Land parcels were sold piece by piece by the aging Smiths. Fox Hill land was purchased by a developer, Triad/TST Corporation. It was then subdivided and sold to six builders: Don Jordan, Steve Hensford, Weldon Nash, Carl Riden, Charles DeVore/Robert Pierce and Ambassador Homes.
THE OLD FARMHOUSE:
An old white, two-story farmhouse was the home of Bishop and Susie Smith. It stood where the house at 5214 Fox Hill Drive now stands and the lane led to East Jones Bridge Road. The Smith's has five children. A son, John sold all of the land that now encompasses River Crest to a developer who then subdivided and sold the losts to builders. The farmhouse was razed in 1980. The Orchards subdivision is so-named as it occupies the site of the Smith's orchard of fruit trees. Bishop Smith died in 1982 at the age of 97. His wife preceded him in death in the early 1970s.
THE FIRST HOMES:
Weldon Nash built the first home at 5275 Fox Hill Drive in 1978. Next to be built were the residences at 5274 and 5304 Fox Hill Drive. The last home built was in 1984 at 4012 Jones Bridge Circle to become the wonderful neighborhood Fox Hill is today.
