Thomas H. Noblit (1812-1899), who served the community as justice of the peace, doctor, merchant, and farmer, built this log dogtrot farmhouse in the 1840s. The Civil War battle at Sugar Creek occurred nearby in December 1864. In the 1890s, his son-in-law, William Franklin "Will" Lytle (1858-1942), renovated the house in the Queen Anne style. Will's daughter, Mary Will Lytle (1897-1990), was among Tennessee's first women dentists.
