Valentine Sevier home - Greeneville, TN

Valentine Sevier home - Greeneville, TN

This is the oldest house in Greeneville, built sometime around 1795 by Sevier, who was a local political leader and philanthropist in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. At one time, the home was owned by President Andrew Johnson whose final home is just across the street down the block. Later the house was owned by the O'Keefe family where Quincy Marshall O'Keefe and Edith O'Keefe Susong became the only mother and daughter in the TN Newspaper Hall of Fame.
