Overview

The Douglass-Clark House is a historic site dedicated to sharing the multifaceted history of Sumner County and its past residents. Initially built as a home for Elmore Douglass and his family around 1786, the house was jointly used as one of the county's earliest courthouses between 1788-1790. The Clark family was the next generation to occupy the house and they witnessed the declaration of the Civil War in 1861, followed by four of their own enlisting on behalf of the Confederate cause. Slavery was also deeply intertwined with the history of the Douglass-Clark House as documentation listed enslaved persons living at the property as early as 1790. We invite you to visit the Douglass-Clark House to hear the stories of those generations and reflect upon how their lives shaped our world today.

This is a wonderful place to visit to discover local facts of an old cabin situated in Sumner County. Andrew Jackson even tried cases here, as it was used as the courthouse for a while. If in the area, it's a nice stop to visit.
