Mr. Henry Horton built the original house in 1891 and 1892. It was a large ten room dwelling on Lot No. 4. Mr. Horton had built around a much older structure, a low ceiling room, with ash flooring, wavy hand poured window panes and “pin and board” construction (without iron nails). These features indicate this room was built no later than 1812-1815, which makes it older than Hincheyville. Dr. Rosalie Carter, Tennessee’s first female dentist, lived here.
