Hunter-Preston Farmhouse

Hunter-Preston Farmhouse

This farm was part on the 2,560 acre Thomas Benton plantaion which was sold in 1821 to Samuel Cummins, and was then sold to Dr. George B.Hunter in 1865. In 1902, this house was built in a Queen Anne style using Sears and roebuck hardware, woodwork and mantels. JT Morton purchased the 500 acre farm in 1907 for $13,500. The Blackburn family operated a dairy farm for 30 years. In 1999, the Preston family granted a conservation easement to the Land Trust of Tennessee.
