Tremendous tour of Carter Mansion...props to Taylor Moorefield for a most informative and enjoyable tour. Carter Mansion the oldest frame house in Tennessee. As always, the backstory surrounding those who lived in the house is what makes a tour special and this one delivers. From handwriting on the wall before soldiers arrived to wallpaper INSIDE a closet door to mysterious paintings on the wall and a cabinet that is part of the wall...this was a wonderful experience. Highly recommended.

If you get a chance to just walk around the outside of this place, do it. It's one of two in Elizabethton that have some real historic significance. If you call Sycamore Shoals State Park ahead of time, they may allow you inside for a tour and tell you all about it . It has been restored and is occasionally the site of reenactments as well.

Went by the Carter House. It is open only at certain times. Not open on the day we were there. Beautiful old home. Maybe next time it will be open.

This is the oldest frame house in Tennessee. There was not yet a sawmill in TN when the boards for this house were brought over the mountains from the Virginia colonies. This and many special architectural features make this a fascinating house and many interesting stories of the family that built it made this a delightful visit.

The house was not open to go inside when I stopped. The cemetery at the site is really interesting. The Carter section is the best in the cemetery.
