Who were the first residents of The Landings? That distinction belongs to Elbert and Helen Little, who bought their lot in 1972, built their own home at 4 Tything Man Lane, and moved into it in 1973, claiming Club Membership #14!
Pat and Howard Hackney were the first to get Natural Gas in The Landings at their residence at 28 Chatuachee Crossing. In 1987, they started a major home renovation and built a gourmet kitchen. The kitchen took a year to plan and complete and included five commercial gas cooktops, each with 20,000 BTUs; a commercial Custom Cooper Hood, antique Chinese Tiles purchased by Howard in China; and a Georgia Pink Marble Pastry Center with Savannah Grey Brick surround. This was during the cooking and home entertainment wave of the 80s. The kitchen also boasted heart pine floors, custom cherry cabinets, and beveled glass. The Hackneys sold the house in 1995 and now live in Oakridge. It is their understanding that the kitchen at 28 Chatuachee Crossing still is just as it was designed.
