Long Description:
"William Quarles, Revolutionary War officer, settled here ca. 1809, built a house, barns, general store, blacksmith shop, and school, and set up a post office. His residence was a noted inn along the old pike. When Putnam County was established in 1842, the site served as county seat. Quarles' grandson, Stephen D. Burton, farmer, merchant, and slave trader, built this home before 1860."
