The Property

The original home site was just under one acre and the current owners added two additional holdings, creating a parcel that is approximately 1.92 acres.

The creek running through the property is from a natural spring.  Here, both Union and Confederate soldiers passed through the property, camping near the spring at different points in the Civil War.

Just across Main Street, Crockett Spring Park is a memorial to pioneers David and Elizabeth Crockett who were among the first settlers to the area, and the grandparents of Davy Crockett.  At this point in history, the easternmost corner of Tennessee was known as the state of Franklin, until North Carolina wrestled it back in 1789.  Then in 1796 Franklin was returned to the new state of Tennessee.  Davy would grow up nearby, near Greene and Washington Counties.
