Buchanan Log House

Buchanan Log House

This charming two-story log house was begun in 1800. It has evolved through the years into a unique historic property which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The house is built of chestnut logs with poplar floors. Original limestone fireplaces provide focal points for the parlor and bride's room.

Guests enjoy the ambiance of days past melded with today's modern facilities. The Buchanan Log House is the property of the Association for the Preservation of Tennessee Antiquities and is operated by the Donelson-Hermitage Chapter.
