Notes

The historic resources survey identified over 200 extant examples of the L-plan house, including this property on N. Tennessee. This house is significant because it has hardly any changes to its exterior. The jigsawn porch frieze reveals an influence of the Queen Anne style. According to the current owner, J.T. Moore hired the firm of Scott and Tucker to build this house in 1901-02. Mr. Moore, who was identified in the 1898-99 city directory as a sewing machine agent, lived here until 1904, when J.H. Green acquired the house. Mr. Green and the subsequent owner, W.S. Maffitt, only lived here one or two years apiece. In 1906 T.A. and Mollie Leatherwood bought the house. Mr. Leatherwood worked in the machinery department of the I and GN Railroad. He died around 1935, but his wife continued to live here until the mid-1940s.
