This house, now a private residence, was built in the mid-1800s, and was inherited in the 1920s by Frances Neel Cheney, a grand-niece of Sam Davis, after the death of her aunt, Lizzie Davis Tucker. Frances (known as "Fannie") was a professor at Peabody College, and her husband, Brainard "Lon" Cheney, had a long and interesting career as a writer. They counted Flannery O’Connor and many of the Fugitive Poets among their guests here. There is a nice exhibit on the Cheneys at the Smyrna Public Library.
