Greensboro in Guilford County, North Carolina — The American South (South Atlantic)
Francis McNairy House
In 1967 the museum purchased this house and moved it approximately eight miles from its original site on Old Battleground Road near Horsepen Creek. Following extensive renovations in 1994, the house was restored and reinterpreted to the 1820s, when siding covered the exterior logs and pine paneling, chair rail and decorative mantels were added to the interior.
According to tradition David Caldwell, a self-trained physician, used the house as a field hospital after the Battle of Guilford Courthouse on March 15, 1781.
