Inscription.  This classic two-story Federal-style house was built c 1829 by Judge Thomas Stuart, Williamson County's first Circuit Judge. It features Flemish Bond brickwork on the front and American Bond on the sides and rear. The “glorified frontier” floor plan, common to Middle Tennessee, remains unaltered. The interior contains a large amount of original woodwork, including built-in cabinets in each room. During the Civil War, Confederate and Federal soldiers camped on the grounds. In 1862, General Don Carlos Buell's Federal Army could be seen from the back porch as it marched to Shiloh. In 1996, Glen Echo became a focal point of Battle Ground Academy's new Upper School campus. The house was renovated and restored in 1998.
 
Erected 1999 by Williamson County Historical Society.
