The Boone family acquired this property on Milwee Creek in 1849 and constructed the house soon after. Members of the Boone family were farmers and one a physician. In 1857 the property and house passed to James Douthit, who was a farmer and served as a corporal in the Confederate Army. His daughter taught school and music in the house. The house later passed to this daughter, and her second husband at her death. Since his death in 1930, the house was occupied by a series of tenants.
