Once crumbling nearby, this 1778 two-story log house was restored and moved to the Main Street district. The keystone of the town’s restoration effort, this cabin was owned by Christopher Taylor, who was sent from North Carolina to protect pioneers from attacks by Native Americans. Visit the Jonesborough History Museum or take one of the guided walking or carriage tours and visit the 1788 Christopher Taylor house, the log house that was Andrew Jackson’s home when he came to Tennessee.
