Notes
Survey number HABS TN-167
Significance: The Inn was completed shortly after 1785 by William Deery. It was built in three stages. The first stage being the log portion. This part is though to have existed as early as 1764. The second stage consists of the stone kitchen and dining area, with porches to either side and bedroom above. The third stage was the addition of the Inn itself and General Store. The Inn was a stopping place for many distinguished travelers of early days. Andrew Jackson, James K. Polk, the Marquise de Lafayette, Prince Louis Philipe, Andrew Johnson and many others enjoyed its hospitality. It operated as an inn until shortly before 1930. It is at present the residence of Judge and Mrs. Joseph A. Caldwell.
