This hand-hewn house fronting the Great Stage Road is the original ca. 1792 dwelling. This was the meeting place for the first county government in 1795. The Traditional Appalachian Heritage Musical Association hosts live jam sessions on Fridays at 6 p.m. Also open by appointment. Legends handed down through the years "suggest" that this building was the Colonel John Anderson townhouse in historic Blountville. From 1957-1965, the building was used as a parsonage for the Blountville Methodist Church until a new parsonage was built. Today, the center is home to the Traditional Appalachian Musical Heritage Association [TAMHA], and is visited by tourists who enjoy seeing the historic two-story log cabin.
