The History of the 18th Century Landmark:
The property was built in 1885 by General Adrian Northcutt. General Northcutt was a Captain in the Mexican War, a Brigadier General in the Tennessee Militia, and served ten years in the Tennessee Legislature.
A descendant of the Northcutt family, eccentric Miss Fannie Moffitt, ultimately moved into the 12 room house. She’d inherited thousands of acres of land and was quite wealthy, receiving royalties from coal mining and lumber harvesting from her property. Miss Fanny died in 1955 at only 62 years of age, with no established will in place. After her death, $15,000 in cash and royalty checks were found strewn throughout the home. Her furnishings alone were valued at $15,000. Miss Fanny was buried in a $7,500 copper casket.
Mr. Adrian Northcutt donated the log cabin to the county that sits behind the manor. It was used as the old log county courthouse for years.
