Babb Family Cabin
211 S Main St
Greeneville, TN 37743
The “Babb Family Log House” was built around 1787 in what is now known as the Babbs Mill area of northeastern Greene County, off the Kingsport Highway. It was located along the present-day Kingsport Highway, about a half-mile from the Newmansville Crossroads. The homestead was in use for more than 100 years, until a larger house was built next door in 1896 by Seth Babb’s descendants.
The original structure continued to be used for other purposes, including as a barn. The cabin is located in Fox Park on College Street and is open for viewing Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. until 4 p,m.
