In Sept. 16 Issue
Lake Cumberland Real Estate & Auction will hold an auction Saturday and with it goes a piece of Russell County history. In fact, a very old piece of Russell County history.
One of the oldest houses in Russell County, estimated to have been constructed around 1790, was moved from the Creelsboro area in 1968 to the present site it stands today.
The old home, claimed to be one of the first houses in the Creelsboro area , consisted of large yellow poplar logs, and was moved and reconstructed as near as possible to replicate the original structure.
Claude Kean was the builder of the home in 1968 and while the house was kept near original, plumbing and electricity was incorporated through the logs during construction.
The home will be sold at auction Saturday, Sept. 18th, 1 p.m. for the Smith family.
During the past 42 years, the house has had various owners with various additions being made, but the historical part of the house remains, much the original as it began in the 1700s.
Much of the interior of the house abides with the original logs being exposed. Lake Cumberland Real Estate and Auction invites you to come prior to the action and re-live a few moments from the past history of the county.
The house is located on Hwy 127, just south of Jamestown.
