Originally built in 1847, Dr. John Patillo Clingman, who practiced medicine, built this home for his wife Camilla Ann Cash. Dr. Clingman, who’s famous for Clingman’s Dome in the Great Smokey Mountains, office still stands today on the property. The home was built in the same era as the Vogler house in Old Salem. The original post and beam construction can be seen as well as solid brick interior walls. Oral tradition suggests that during the Civil War, the Union army took over the home, camped around it but chose not to burn it!
