Mooreland - Brentwood, TN

Mooreland - Brentwood, TN

Here is an example of an old Majestic Home that has been repurposed after a commercial development has sprawled up around it. Revolutionary War General Robert Irvin settled here in 1807. Work began on this house in 1838 by his son Robert Irvin Moore and their family lived in the house until 1944. During the Civil War, both sides used the Greek Revival home as a hospital.

Today, this area around Franklin Pike (US31) in Brentwood is home to many businesses. I didn't even realize until recently this old home was here among all the office complexes here. In 1985, the home was restored by Koger Properties and they use it for their offices. See the historical marker here:
