Robertson Family Farm added to register of historic places

with one comment

The Tennessee Historical Commission announced the Robertson Family Farm, in Hardemon County, has been added to the National Register of Historic Places. It is an historic family-owned, African-American farm.

It was started by a former slave named Crawford Robertson and continues to be owned and farmed by his descendants. Robertson bought his first tract of land, totaling 75 acres, in 1888. He purchased two more tracts in 1896 and 1904. 

The centerpiece of the farm is a 1906 farmhouse, which the family calls the Home House. In addition, there are a tenant house, farm storage buildings, a barn, a modern house and about 153 acres of farmland that comprise the present-day farmstead.
