Rutledge House - Blountville, TN

Rutledge House - Blountville, TN

Along the main street in historic downtown Blountville are several historic properties in a row. This one is next door to the Deery Inn, the most famous building in town.

On the left is a black metal gate. There is a marker on that gate that it was designed by Adolph Cluss, and displayed at the Smithsonian from 1879-1910 and then brought here in the 1940s by Virginia Caldwell. On the right there's a historic marker for hall-of-fame long bow fiddler Ralph Blizard. The Traditional Appalachian Musical Heritage Association which was founded by Ralph Blizzard plans on converting this house into the Ralph Blizard Bluegrass Museum.
