Keebler-Keefauver Home receives state historical marker

One of the area’s most historically significant homes was honored Friday with a Tennessee state historical marker.  

The Keebler-Keefauver Home on Hales Chapel Road dates back to 1858 when it was built by the Keebler family.  

The farm on the property sold to the Keefauver family in 1950 and gradually was developed into a dairy farm of registered Holstein Cattle.  

The dedication of the mark was hosted by the state and Johnson City Parks and Recreation Department.  

It also represented a big moment for the family.  

One interesting fact from the home? It was the first in the area to have indoor plumbing and electricity.
