Morton-Brittain Historic Home in Nolensville Tennessee


Pen and Ink drawing of the Morton-Brittain Historic Home in Nolensville Tennessee.
Quote from Channel 4 News in Nashville…  “The Morton-Brittain House has been at its spot in Nolensville since a time it was surrounded only by farmland. Stagecoaches carried people by. It’s a survivor from a very different time. “It was built in 1870,” said Carroll Moore, president of the Nolensville Historical Society. “This house represents the former Nolensville.”
