Northcut Plantation, Wheeler Lane, McMinnville, Warren County, TN



Significance: The plantation house was constructed c. 1840. Built on a large scale, it is a well-preserved example of a type of architecture typical to many Tennessee antebellum country houses. Its open-air dog-trot between kitchen and smokehouse, brick paving, one-room-deep masonry construction, vast entry hall with exterior doors at each end, and courtyard make it well adapted to the hot summer climate. The house should be noted also for its well-preserved brick slave quarters that form the southwest side of the original courtyard. The woodwork and the doors on the interior of the house are beautifully grained. The original hardware is extant.
