This home is one of the last remaining in its original condition in Tennessee. fully restored, it now showcases rail and coal mining life as it was on the mountain during the 1900 time frame. Visitors have the opportunity to see artifacts, pictures and various memorabilia that provide a glimpse into the life of the people who helped build White County and power much of America with the "black gold" pulled from deep inside the mountain.
