Inscription.  In 1883, Gen. William G. Harding gave his daughter, Mary, 2600 acres of his farm, Belle Meade. The same year, Mary and her husband, U. S. Senator Howell E. Jackson, bought a 131-acre farm adjoining that tract. They built this home at a cost of $14,905. During his lifetime, Howell was a U. S. Senator and a justice on both the U. S. 6th Circuit Court and the U. S. Supreme Court. The house remained in the family until 1944 when the farm was sold and subdivided.
