Thompson-Partlow Cabin and Smokehouse
Century Farm Museum
Many of the items in the cabin were donated by the Thompson family; the rocking chair, table, lamps, and other items. We also have on loan from the family the four wood slaves used on the frame of the covered wagon the family traveled in, which is very rare they have survived.
The smokehouse was used to store the family meal and dried foods such as vegetables and herbs. The cabin was donated for the specific purpose for a Century Farm Museum. The museum contains information on all the Century Farms in Wilson County.
The cabin and smokehouse were donated by: Mr. and Mrs. Charles Thompson and family in 2002
