The Nolen-McCord House contains the original 18th century log cabin that housed the first settlers of Nolensville. Later in the 19th century, a Greek Revival home was built around the cabin which has been updated periodically since.

Nolensville is a small town in Williamson County, just outside Metro Nashville. It still holds quaint charm with an historic antique-shop-filled downtown, with amenities for suburban life.

This property and town are one of a kind.

The space
The Nolen-McCord House is so named because Newt McCord built his home on property previously owned by William Nolen, for whom the community of Nolensville was named. According to land grants and deeds, William Nolen owned land at least by 1798 along Mill Creek where the town still stands.

Newt McCord's house was built over William Nolen's two story log cabin, parts of which can be seen in the common area of the house today. It was restored to highlight the unique nature of the house.

The Nolen-McCord House is Greek Revival, a dominant style for American domestic architecture from about 1830 to 1850 and is also called the National Style.

Two-story gable-front houses with an additional side-gabled wing are a common form in rural areas. A shed-roofed porch was typically placed within the L made by the two wings. Most houses built in the pre-railroad era had Greek Revival detailing.

The principal areas of elaboration in Greek Revival homes of this type are cornice lines, porch-support columns, windows, and doorways.

The band of trim beneath the cornice along the roofs was typical. Elaborate door surrounds are another dominant feature of Greek Revival houses. Pilasters on the house corners were frequently used features. Classical columns used for the support of the porch roof are also a prominent feature.

My family has been asked by a family friend to care for the two most historic homes in our small town Nolensville Tennessee, a suburb of Nashville. We are in the process of readying the homes for Airbnb listings and are excited at our progress! Our family stays almost exclusively at Airbnbs when we travel, and are excited about hosting now, too. We make sure as guests we leave your place in great shape and as hosts we plan to be hospitable and helpful. My wife, Suzanne, is an RN for a psychiatric crises team and now a part time Airbnb host. She has wanted to have a bed and breakfast all her life, even keeping books of ideas. Now she is living it out and really enjoying it. If we host you, we look forward to having you stay during our travels. As guests, thanks for opening your home.
