Notes
Survey number HABS TN-220
Significance: The residence of Mrs. Nannie Bynum Clay is an excellent example of early Italianate or "bracketed" style architecture in Tennessee. The house is noted for its spiral staircase, plaster ceiling moldings, marble and wood mantels, jib windows, spacious rooms, and its elaborate built-in bookcases and cabinets. The house is similar to many of those illustrated in A.J. Downing's "Architecture of Country Houses" of 1850.
