Inscription. William Brannon Barrow built this cabin in 1795. According to family records, the land was one of the last Land Grants issued from North Carolina prior to the Statehood of Tennessee in 1796.

The left museum houses the personal items of James E. Ward. His personal items and artifacts used for curing ham and also wine barrels and items from his other hobby of wine making.
