RUTHERFORD COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY

PUBLICATION NO. 2

Winter, 1973

THE COVER: The request for bids for building Rutherford
County a courthouse that appeared in the Nashville Whig , Novem-
ber 25, 1812, was most intriguing. So much so that the idea was
suggested that an architectural rendering of the proposed building
be attempted. In cooperation with the Historical Society, Mr.
Charles Pigg, Plant Planner for Middle Tennessee State University,
contacted Yearwood and Johnson, Nashville architects. The firm
was amenable to the project and assigned Mr. John E. Suter, a
longtime draftsman of the firm, to the job. The sketch on the
cover is the result of Mr. Suter 's efforts. A re-reading of the
specifications printed in "Publication No. 1" will bear out the
faithful and imaginative adherence to the Whig ' s descriptive
notice of 1812.

Was the building ever constructed? If Goodspeed is accepted
as the authority, it was not. Yet Goodspeed has perpetuated many
errors and contradictions in light of later research. If it were
not built — possibly because of the cost — Rutherford County made
its initial salute to conservatism and frontier economy. If it
were built, the loafers and hallway philosophers were in first
class quarters.

RUTHERFORD COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY



PUBLICATION NO. 2



FOREWORD

There seems to be a semblance of permanency in a bound
document that has an identifying cover. With this in mind
the Society hopes to preserve some of the rich historical
heritage that abounds in the county. This, therefore, is the
principal purpose of this publication and the one that preceded
it. Hopefully, there will be others.

The resources of the Society do not permit technical
preparation of successive volumes by a professional printer.
However, mimeographed material locked in by a printed cover
will serve the purpose — at least for the time being.

All members of the Society will receive a copy of the
publication, and those that follow, as a part of the membership
dues. Revenue derived from the sale of extra copies will pro-
vide some assurance of the continuity of the publications.

We express our thanks to those who have purchased one or
more copies of this issue. Your assistance will enable us to
continue our project.
