Rural Mount

Built in 1799 by Alexander Outlaw for his son-in-law Joseph Hamilton. Both of these men were instrumental in founding the States of Franklin and later Tennessee. (ref: Historic American Buildings Survey).

 

This building was recently added to the Tennessee Preservation Trust's "Ten in Tennessee" list...a roster of some of the state's most endangered historic sites.
