Robert Young's Cabin .... The restored cabin of Robert Young, early pioneer of Washington County, Tennessee is now located in Sertoma City Park, Johnson City, Tennessee

Note from Betty Jane Hylton: The Robert Young cabin has been moved to Winged Deer Park at Boone Lake. It has been remodeled and made into offices, losing it's historical value. The local descendants are very disappointed that the city officials moved it off the original land grant. Today, 9/24/02 the Overmountain Men held a ceromony at the Robert Young Cemetery honoring him.
