Description

Newspaper article and photograph depicting log cabin and describing its history.
Transcription: The Thomas Greer House, one of the oldest structures in the town, is said to have been built between 1865 and 1868. Mr. Greer, who moved from the head of Elk after the marriage of his daughter to T.J. Coffey, died there. It is built of hewn logs, fashioned largely by Captain Cook, son of Michal Cook, Watauga's first Sheriff. Granville Norris and family, who lived in the old house for many years, have moved and the building is vacant. Mr. and Mrs. A.W. Beach and family lived in the Greer house for many years. -- Staff photo by Minor.
