Structures Built By Buckner

At least fifteen houses currently standing in Sevier County are believed to have been built by Buckner, although some have not been verified by any source other than oral tradition or the fact that certain designs strongly resemble Buckner's known works. Houses built or renovated by Buckner include:

  • Riley H. Andes House, on Douglas Dam Road in Sevierville, Tennessee, built around 1890; added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.
  • Sam Dixon House, built in 1914 near the Shady Grove community.
  • William Cal Jones House, built circa 1886 in the Fair Garden community, usually attributed to Buckner.
  • Lafollette-Patterson House, a two-story house in the Fair Garden community east of Sevierville.
  • Mullendore House, built in 1921 near Pigeon Forge.
  • Darius and Mary Robertson House, a 2-story I-frame house built circa 1880 in the Harrisburg community outside of Sevierville. Buckner did most of the house's original interior design work.
  • Trotter-Waters House, at 217 Cedar Street in downtown Sevierville, built in the Queen Anne style in 1895; added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.

Famous quotes containing the words structures and/or built:

    It is clear that all verbal structures with meaning are verbal imitations of that elusive psychological and physiological process known as thought, a process stumbling through emotional entanglements, sudden irrational convictions, involuntary gleams of insight, rationalized prejudices, and blocks of panic and inertia, finally to reach a completely incommunicable intuition.
    Northrop Frye (b. 1912)

    Practically everyone now bemoans Western man’s sense of alienation, lack of community, and inability to find ways of organizing society for human ends. We have reached the end of the road that is built on the set of traits held out for male identity—advance at any cost, pay any price, drive out all competitors, and kill them if necessary.
    Jean Baker Miller (20th century)
