West 1/2 mile is the Couch cabin. When Spencer County, State of Franklin, became Hawkins County, North Carolina, the cabin was moved across the road (1786 state line) south from its location on Little Gap Creek (west 200 yards). In 1796 the State of Tennessee was created from this part of The Territory of the United States South of the River of Ohio.
