Regarding Breckenridge Hatter's Shop. Excerpt from the National Register nomination:
The Breckenridge Hatter's Shop was built c. 1819 by Ebenezor Smith, one of the early settlers of Maury County. Be operated a hatter's shop from the building and then he deeded the property to his son, William Smith, in 1824. William Smith sold the property to his partner David Breckenridge in 1826 who operated the hatter's shop until c. 1850. Even though the business was started by Ebenezor Smith, the building is known locally as the Breckenridge Hatter's Shop.
