Description 

In 1832, the Zachary family came to the Cashiers area to build a homestead in what had been part of the vast Cherokee Nation in western North Carolina. The house, which was completed in 1852, was a gift from Mordecai Zachary to his bride, Elvira Keener. The house had no electricity, plumbing, central heat, or painted interior walls.
