Double Corn Crib
This double corn crib and the cantilever barn on the other side are on the Tipton Place in Cades Cove in the Great Smoky Mountains. .The first Tennessee grant to land in Cades Cove was registered March 23, 1821 in the name of William Tipton for 640 acres in Cades Cove. William “Fighting Billy” Tipton was the son of Colonel John Tipton and fought along with his father in the Revolutionary War. He was 15 years old when he signed up..In 1818 William and Joshua Jobe persuaded John and Lucretia Oliver to become the first settlers in the Cove in return for enough supplies for the trip and funding for their own farm once the land grant was approved. Over the next several years William and many of his friends and relatives moved to the Cove. .Colonial Hamp Tipton, a veteran of the Mexican American Way, had his home built on this property a few years after the Civil War. .
