King Homestead

King Homestead (now called New Moon Farm) is a log home located in Cottontown, Sumner County, Tennessee. It was built in 1798 by William King as the first home for him and his new bride, Caroline Hassell. The home remained in the King family for one hundred years, before being sold outside the family. The home has undergone renovation and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.

Famous quotes containing the words king and/or homestead:

    ... and the next summer she died in childbirth.
    That’s all. Of course, there may be some sort of sequel but it is not known to me. In such cases instead of getting bogged down in guesswork, I repeat the words of the merry king in my favorite fairy tale: Which arrow flies for ever? The arrow that has hit its mark.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)

    These Flemish pictures of old days;
    Sit with me by the homestead hearth,
    And stretch the hands of memory forth
    To warm them at the wood-fire’s blaze!
    John Greenleaf Whittier (1807–1892)
