Inscription.  Waverly attorney Hugh McAdoo built the McAdoo House built circa 1878. At the time he served as Speaker of the Tennessee State Senate, having first been elected in 1877, immediately after having served four years in the House of Representatives. In 1883 McAdoo sold the house to Peter Pickard, who served as State Comptroller for six years, beginning in 1883. In later years the house had several owners. A notable example of late Victorian Italianate architecture, the house features foot-thick solid brick walls. In 1991 the McAdoo House was listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
