One mile south, on south side of East Branch of Mulberry Creek, David Crockett built a log house in which he lived from 1811 to 1813. While here he hunted, and cleared a field three miles northwest on "Hungry Hill." When bears and other game became scarce, he moved to better hunting grounds in Franklin County.
