Mark Montgomery Andrews Place

Henry B. Reams (1786-1836) and Sarah “Sally” North Reams (1795-1835) built this 2 story log home in 1812 on Lewisburg Pike. They wed in 1817. Reams gave land for a church called Prospect Methodist Church because a neighbor, Mr. Cowles, requested the opportunity. At first it was called Reams’ Chapel, but over time it became known as Cowles’ Chapel.


Mark Montgomery Andrews (1804-1890) and his cousin and wife Sarah “Sallie” Pearson Locke Andrews Andrews (1811-1895) purchased the property next. Next, their son Mark Montgomery Andrews Jr. (1850-1922) and Lillie Parks Andrews (1826-1890) continued ownership of the property and farming it. The Andrews Place remained in the family until 1966.


The house sat vacant for five years. In 1971, the Randy Jordan family were owners.
