Historic Williamson Co. House On Sale For $7,500—With A Catch

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A historic home in Williamson County is on the market for less than $10,000, but there's a catch.

The Heritage Foundation is offering the "Cotton Gin House" for $7,500, but the buyer must relocate the home to another property in Williamson County.

The land where the home currently sits is the site of the future Carter Cotton Gin Park.

The property served as an important part of The Battle of Franklin in 1864.

The story-and-a-half home, built near the turn of the 20 School on Columbia Avenue, was moved across the street in the 1920s to this location to make way for the new high school. It includes all of the original trim, fireplaces, beaded board paneling and a central staircase, along with several original windows and doors.

The Heritage Foundation purchased the property for $162,000 in 1997.

The house must be moved off the property by March of 2014. Anyone interested is asked to call Pearce at the Heritage Foundation at 615-591-8500 , extension 15.
