This building's exterior is a reproduction of a tavern built on this site in 1807 by Harrison McAtee. This location, on a section of the Little River Turnpike that opened in December 1806, was advantageous for farmers conveying goods from western counties to Alexandria. McAtee suffered financially from an economic depression caused by the Panic of 1819. McAtee sold the tavern in 1822. The building was later used as a residence. The Mitchell, Wrenn, and Weeks families were among the subsequent owners. The stone of the chimneys and the log siding on the front porch are original materials.
