Inscription.  Gilbert Christian received 1280 acres from North Carolina Grant No. 205 in 1792. His son, George Christian, was active in Overton County government: he served as County Commissioner (1807), Justice of the Peace (1810), and Trustee of Overton County in 1813. Volunteering to fight the Indians, George Joined the army at Ish's Station. The Christian family donated the land for the old log Bethlehem Church; it and the current brick building were located on the Old Standing Stone Road that ran through the farm.

Annette Oakley, raised cattle on the farm recognized as the oldest pioneer county farm in Overton County and Upper Cumberland area.
