This home and the Castle Heights Military Academy is stop #13 on the Historic Lebanon Driving tour. Here is the text from that brochure:

The Mitchell House is a fantastic example of neoclassical style architecture. Built as the home of Castle Heights President, David Mitchell, it was completed in 1910. The three story, Sewanee sandstone structure has 10,600 square feet and many fine original features such as hand-carved woodwork, ornamental ceilings and an impressive staircase. In 1936 the building became the home of the Junior School for the Castle Heights Military Academy.

After the school closed in 1986, the home sat empty and neglected for over ten years. The Cracker Barrel Foundation, with its national headquarters in Lebanon, oversaw the complete restoration of the structure in 1998. Now the Executive Office of Sigma Pi Fraternity International, the building is a grand testament to the community’s preservation efforts.

This is now one of 87 different Rock City Barns I have photographed and uploaded to Flickr in my Rock City Barns set. People often ask me how I've found so many of them. I have drawn from many resources such as books and web sites and sometimes luck, but there's not really one "go to" place to find them all. Well, now on my website, I have tried to create a one stop source for the locations of all of the barns I've been to. On my Map of Rock City Barns page, I have plotted each barn on a Google Map.

This note is from Roadside America, talking about its previous location:
In 1980 the world's first bronze Elvis statue was unveiled on Beale Street, where the future King of Rock and Roll crafted his early musical style. But the statue, by Eric Parks, proved too delicate for the elements and souvenir-crazed fans, who stripped its guitar strings and tore the tassels from Elvis's suit. It was taken down in 1994 and moved indoors to the downtown Memphis Tennessee Welcome Center.

Text of the historic marker:
This old Academy, built in 1836, was in the line of fire during the battle of LaFayette in the War Between the States. General Braxton Bragg who had his headquarters in LaFayette, planned the Battle of Chickamauga under an old oak tree that stood in front of this building and was known as "Bragg's Oak." The tree was destroyed by lightning a few years ago. The LaFayette Chapters of the D.A.R. and U.D.C. purchased this historic building to preserve it. It was renamed John B. Gordon Hall for Gen. Gordon, former pupil in the academy.

Here is the Wikipedia entry:
The Chattooga Academy, also known as John B. Gordon Hall, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

It is a two-story red brick Federal-style building. It was the site of the Battle of LaFayette during the American Civil War.

It had 15 boys and 37 girls as students in 1838; students boarded in the homes of families nearby. Confederate general John B. Gordon (1832-1904) was an early student.

The law office referenced on this 1941 plaque is now at Fiddler's Grove at the Wilson County Fairgrounds: flic.kr/p/djsZe4 Here is text from the marker at the Law Office's current site: In 1818, after studying law for six months under Judge James Trimble, Sam Houston passed the Bar to practice law. He came to Wilson County to practice law. Mr. Frederick Golladay befriended Mr. Houston and furnished him a small log cabin for an office near the Lebanon town square. Mr. Golladay charged him a dollar a month rent: then, lent him the dollar. Sam Houston practiced law for ten months, at which time he was appointed Adjutant General with the rank of Colonel in October, 1819. In 1827, Sam Houston was elected Governor of Tennessee and served approximately two years of his term before resigning in 1829. This pre-civil war cabin was originally on the property of Judge Nathan Green, who was known as the father of Jurisprudence of the State of Tennessee, served as Professor of Law at Cumberland University. The family of Judge Sam Gilreath donated the cabin to Fiddlers Grove in 1994.
