Stonewall History

Built in 1831 for Dr. Levi Dana Ring, superintendent of Transmontania Academy on land he purchased from General/Governor William Hall.

Ring sold the house in 1833 and there have been many ownerships since.

In 1839 Bowling Embry, who in 1844 was a founder of Franklin College in Donelson, where David Lipscomb was educated, purchased the house.

A few years later it became the home of the Rev. William Hume of the Presbyterian Church, and after whom Hume Avenue was named.

1874 – 1878:  it was a boys’ dormitory for Neophogen College.

In 1905 it was purchased by Ernest B. House and was their home for fifty years.

Then it was purchased by John B. Garrott, who was a founder of the Sumner County Museum.  He donated this home to the museum in 2015.  The shop on the property was built in the 1950’s and was the County Garage.  John used it as a wood working shop and produced antique reporoduction furniture in it, most of which he donted to local charities to help them raise money.
