Belle Vue I - 1795 Log Home

Belle Vue I 1795 Log Home

This historic log cabin now resides at Red Caboose Park in the Bellevue area of Nashville.
The following text is taken from the Bellevue Harpeth Historic Association website where they also have some "before" photos:
The Belle Vue I log cabin was built by Abram Louis DeMoss in 1795 on a hill overlooking the Harpeth River on what is now Morton Mill Road. Later, Riverside was built next to the cabin. Riverside was destroyed by fire, so in order to preserve the history for future generations, Dolly Carter (wife of descendant Frank Carter), donated the cabin to the Bellevue Harpeth Historic Association. BHHA then contracted with Leatherwood to dismantle, label and reconstruct the cabin at Red Caboose Park on Colice Jeanne Road.
