Summary

Significance: Built by General Daniel Smith, a pioneer of Tennessee, Rock Castle was the first of three stone houses to be erected in Sumner County. Reminiscent of the simple homes of the Eastern Seaboard from which General Smith had come to Tennessee, Rock Castle represents a transitional element in frontier Tennessee architecture and construction. It is among the first important houses in the State to reflect a measure of architectural planning.
