Upon entering The Captain's Castle you are immediately struck by the tall ceilings and rich 160-year old wood flooring.
The Captain's Castle, also known as the Rogers-McCasland home, was so named by Captain Thomas J. Rogers, a Confederate officer and local pioneer banker combined two older houses, one already located on the present site (the back part of the existing structure) and the other an imposing landmark of Tennessee Planters Architecture (the two story front portion). He moved the latter across town on log rollers pulled by oxen from down on the river front. The moved portion, built in the 1850's, is said to have been one of the town's most elaborate bawdy houses during its riverboat heydays.
This colorful old home is furnished with many antiques of the period and earlier. The family room has a wonderful sitting area filled with family antiques, original artwork and family portraits dating back to the 18th century. Your Hosts, Angie and Bill Herlocker, invite you to stay with them and experience the elegance and charm of The Captain's Castle.
