William Ogilvie House/ Maplecrest Farm

Updated: Feb 10

The Ogilvie House was built at 6991 Arno-Allisona Rd. in the College Grove area.

Around 1800, William Ogilvie II (1728-1813) and Mary Harris Ogilvie (1735-1807) arrived from North Carolina and were the first settlers in this southeast section of what became Williamson Co. They wed in 1756. They built a log house which was enlarged by the late 1800s. Mary Harris was the granddaughter to Maj. Thomas F. P. Allison of Allison Home/ Beechwood Farm.

When Ogilvie died, his children received 315 acres. His son, Richard Ogilivie (1771-1832), and Cynthia Mary Wilson Ogilvie (1786-1853) got the house and lived there until he died. They wed in 1804. In 1830, the Ogilvies owned 508 acres.

In 1988, the owner was J.D. Ogilvie with 73 acres. NRHP 1988 See Mount View/ Allison House/ Beechwood Farm
