The Blair Ferry Storehouse
County Seat: Loudon
There aren't many structures built in 1834 that are still standing, and only one (to the best of our knowledge) whose ownership became the subject of a pre-Civil War Tennessee Supreme Court case.
We're talking about the Blair Ferry Storehouse, which was built by entrepreneur James Blair in 1834 and then claimed (along with the entire town surrounding it) by a Cherokee Indian named Pathkiller. It took 15 years, but in 1850 the court ruled in Blair's favor. He died the next year, and the name of the town was later changed to Loudon, in honor of the French & Indian War fort that used to exist in this part of Tennessee (although the fort's name is spelled LoudoUn).
The Loudon County Courthouse was a challenge to photograph, since it was late in the afternoon and the sun was setting fast.
