102 College Street, West, Jonesborough, TN 37659  

The home was constructed in 1832 by John Blair, a congressman who represented East TN. He graduated from Washington College in 1809 with law degree. The home sits on 4+ acres in the heart of Jonesborough, Tennessee's Oldest Town. The next owner was Brigadier General Rueben Frank Barnard who served in the Civil War. The next purchase was made by Dominique (Fevrier) February, a tailor who immigrated to the US from France. It is reported that Mr. Febuary was given the monies to purchase the home by his mentor and fellow tailor, Andrew Johnson, (then the 17th President of the US) with repayment of the gift once Mr. Febuary's monies were received from France. The home passed down thru several generations of Febuary's until is was sold to Dr. and Mrs. Dossett, who did extensive renovations/restorations to the home returning it to its original appearance. At this time "Febuary Hill" was the name given to this property after the long linage of Febuary's. Much of the home has remained original over the years although much modernization has taken place such as the 4 bay garage, central hvac, bath addition, etc. This pre-Civil War residence is listed on the National Historic Register. Situated one block from Main St. It is an easy walk from where many events and festivals are held. Enjoy restaurants and shopping.
