From Wikipedia:

Cedar Grove (Brownsville, Tennessee)

Cedar Grove, near Brownsville, Tennessee, also known as Holloway-Morey House is a one-and-a-half-story cottage which was built in c.1850. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980, and was delisted in 2018.

It has Greek Revival architecture, specifically its one-story pedimented portico with four square Tuscan columns, and its door with head and side lights (windows).

Yellow poplar wood was used in its mortise-and-tenon frame construction, in its weatherboard siding, and in its wide plank floors.

At its NRHP listing in 1980 it was on a 4.3 acres (1.7 ha) property; it was once the center of a 1,000 acres (4.0 km2) plantation.
