The Buildings at the Netherland Inn

Christian Marker

On the west side of Lilac Street across from the Inn is a marker memorializing Colonel Gilbert Christian (1734-1793.)

The Netherland Inn

Defying time that has touched so much with ruin, the stately historic Netherland Inn rises high above the Holston River.

The Boatyard

The inn and boatyard is the only place on the National Register of Historic Places that served as a stage stop and a boatyard.

The Boone Cabin

The Boone cabin also serves as a children’s museum. “In 1979/80, this cabin was carefully dismantled and moved from beside the Kentucky wilderness road in Duffield, VA

The Bank Barn

The Bank Barn was built into the embankment and provided a stable on the first level and a second floor for stage coaches and wagon repair.

The Old Schoolhouse

The Old Schoolhouse is described in an on-site plaque as “an Ordinary (inn) – home – schoolhouse, built by 1790.”

The Pence House

This log house was located in the fertile Reedy Creek Valley on the Edgeman-Pence 200 acre plantation, part of the Pendleton Grant, purchased in 1805 from James Gaines by Samuel Edgeman for $600.

The Charlotte

The Charlotte flatboat and two other flatboats were used to re-enact the 1779 Donelson Flotilla which left the banks of the south fork on the Holston River with thirty families that wanted to settle in Middle Tennessee.
