Inscription.  David Hall, a revolutionary War veteran, purchased a plantation near here in 1803. Seven years later he opened a tavern and inn on the property. Granville Arnold purchased the site in 1854, operating the inn for the remainder of the 19th century. Located on Emory Road between Nashville and Knoxville, it served many travelers, including Civil War soldiers and stagecoach passengers. Among Anderson County's oldest surviving structures, the two-story building stands a half-mile south and features hewn logs with v-notches.
