The Edward Cox House

The Edward Cox House

In front of the house is a wooden marker that reads:
The Edward Cox House
Built in 1774
A Shrine of Methodism

In 1774, former Revolutionary War soldier Edward Cox and his wife Sallie moved here from Maryland. This is located in what is today known as Sullivan County, TN near Bluff City on the Holston River. He was a Methodist preacher and he moved here to establish a Methodist congregation in the area.

This home was rebuilt in 1966.
