Alexander Breckenridge

Alexander Breckinridge bought one of the original Wolf Hill subdivision tracts, 380 acres at the confluence of Wolf Creek and Town Creek on the southwest corner of the plat. It is south of I-81 in Abingdon.

The Breckenridge house was moved over the ridge to Joseph Black’s farm for display at the Abingdon library lot. They brag that it is the oldest surviving building in the Holston watershed. Begun in 1769, it was moved over the ridge in 1984 and rebuilt. Christian Black Acklin’s tavern still sits where it started across the great road a block from the Abingdon courthouse. It has been remodeled, too.
