Regarding Abner T. Shaw House.
Constructed in the 1850s, it represents the earliest known use of concrete construction in Davidson County, and together with its outbuildings represents a largely unaltered example of farm construction in the still rural Goodlettsville area of the county. Abner T. Shaw, a life-long resident of Davidson County, was born in 1826 and died in 1884. He purchased the property where the house stands in 1848, and bought additional acreage in 1857. The house was built before the Civil War.
