Significance: This early Tennessee house has been owned continuously by the Washington family since it was built in 1819 for Joseph Washington. Of simple Federal style, the house contains much of its original furniture, family portraits, and library. The garden designed by its first mistress, Mary Cheatham Washington, remains much as it was planned.
