1. Leeman House Marker
Inscription. The Leeman House is a two-story log structure from Eastern Rutherford County. The circa 1820s front section was made with cedar tree trunks fitted together by skillful notching. The second story rear was a circa 1870s addition. The house layout is typical of Tennessee log cabins with a dogtrot between the living and kitchen areas. The front upstairs was used as a girls' sleeping quarters and was not connected to the rear upstairs, where the boys slept. Among the furnishing are an ornate mantel clock, hand-made doilies, newspapers used as insulation and wallpaper, and a print of Custer's Last Stand, together with the General's mess set donated to Cannonsburg by the George Custer family. The modern kitchen facilities are used for receptions when weddings are held at the Williamson Chapel
