Please take a moment to read this blog on the cabin and it's history and then come and see it in person at the Open House on Saturday 8/27/2011 from 2:00 -5:00.
Brentwood Historians can't document it but it is believed that this is the original 24 member Mill Creek Baptist Church in 1804 which is where the Concord Baptist Church has its roots today. Without that documentation, the log cabin is known as the Sanders Cabin. In the 1830's it was owned by the Sanders family who had a daughter Nancy who lived in the cabin and later married a Union soldier after he came to collect the chickens after the Civil War. Nancy and Stan were married lived in the cabin but later moved to the North. Upon Stan's death, Nancy moved back to Williamson County and is believed to have occupied the cabin until her death.
To preserve this cabin each log was numbered and it was disassembled and reassembled correctly at the Mulberry Hill property behind The Ellis House. The current owner restored the log structure and made improvements to see that the history would live on. In a memorial to Stan and Nancy, a Northern and Southern Marriage, Debbie specified Northern White Pine flooring upstairs and Southern Poplar for the main level flooring. The renovation included new sub flooring and many upgrades to make it a more convenient space. These are items like a new 2 ton HVAC system, cable, new toilet fixtures, replaced the screened in porch with new tile flooring and 2 large Pella sliding glass windows.
The loft bedroom was brightened with a triple picture window that provides beautiful scenery of the Mulberry Hill country setting. This cabin would be the perfect place for a person that needs an escape to let the creative juices flow, whether writing, singing, painting, or planning that next business decision. It is truly a place that will be cherished by the next owner as an escape from daily life.
