Notes
Survey number HABS TN-231
Significance: The John and Landon Carter House, known locally as "The Mansion," is a noteworthy example of southern domestic architecture in every respect. Built by the prominent Carter family about 1775, it is one of Tennessee's most important surviving examples of early domestic architecture. This is due not only to the early date of construction but also to several unusual architectural features, in particular, the outstanding panelled interiors reminiscent of Virginia work.
