Prominent pioneer Nicholas Gibbs homesteaded 450 acres here in the late 1700s, on land granted to him for his service in the Revolutionary War. The hewed log house is one of the oldest  structures in the state still on its original site; it was the boyhood home of three War of 1812 soldiers and remained in the family until 1971. Gibbs was Knox CountyÂ’s first Justice of the Peace.
