The Cunningham-Dosser-Broyles-Clayton House
Jonesborough, Tennessee, circa 1880s
From a January 24, 1982 article printed in the Johnson City
Chronicle about the closing of the Dosser store in Johnson
Mary Nell Dosser Keller was interviewed for the article and supplied
photograph of her family in front of the house. At the time of
article, Mrs. Keller was the only surviving child of Robert Newton
Sr., who had purchased the home from Dr. Samuel Blair Cunningham.
Mrs. Keller recalled, "The place was called Afton Hall.
was a creek running through and a rose arbor across the sidewalk, with
roses growing on each side of the walk. A little bridge over the
creek gave easy access to the house."
