1. Mooreland
Inscription.  Mooreland is built on a land grant to Revolutionary War soldier, General Robert Irvin, upon which his daughter and husband, James Moore, settled in 1807. The original log house stood northeast of Mooreland, which was begun in 1838 by their son, Robert Irvin Moore. Mooreland, an outstanding example of Greek Revival architecture, was used by both sides as a hospital during the Civil War. It was occupied by the Moore family until 1944 and restored by Koger Properties, Inc. in 1985 and Boyle Investment Company in 2015.
 
Erected 2017 by Boyle and The Williamson County Historical Society.
