Building: Tories Tavern (Nash County, North Carolina)

Built:
Demolished:
Community:
Nash County
State:
North Carolina
Provenance note:
David Winstead, first owner; David Williams Winstead (tavernkeeper and stagecoach stop operator) and Susan Rice Winstead, second owner
Architectural note:
Alterations to the building resulted in triple chimneys on the west elevation.
Historical note:
The building was moved back when highway construction encroached on the property in 1953. Local tradition attributed the structure as being a former Revolution era tavern, but the home's estimated construction date produced arguments against using the moniker 'Tories Tavern' in reference to the home. The structure burned down in 1968.
