Indian fields, part of James Thompson's original tract inherited from his Grandfather, James Patton in the 1700's. James Thompson fought at King's Mountain. A Cherokee Indian uprising brought about the building as the neighborhood fort. The log and stone house was constructed around 1765. It was used for field slaves quarters in 1843. Pleasant Smith bought the property and made it into a home. Recently restored in 1990, by Vivian & Benny Coletti, it is a Virginia Historic Landmark siteas well as their private residence.
