Inscription.  A veteran of the American Revolutionary War from Georgia, Jonathan Webster purchased this large farm. He came here when the area was a wilderness and was credited with killing the last panther in this area. In 1810 he began this house. Known as the person who brought mules to Maury County, Webster was the first breeder in the county. His actions eventually made Maury County the “Mule Capital” of the nation. Jonathan Webster is buried in this family cemetery.
