      The Mason Place was built by Thomas Jefferson Mason, a river boat captain and a Union sympathizer. William Cassada who was the contractor, Mason's son-in-law and a Confederate sympathizer, built into the upstairs porch balustrade the stars and stripes of the Confederate flag. Prior to the Civil War and construction of the house, slaves had made and stacked a quarter million bricks for the home. During the conflict, the bricks were used for a gun replacement at Fort Hill. Rather than wait for replacement bricks, Captain Mason decided to build the house out of heart-of-pine. The house originally sat on a plantation that contained 1200 acres. During the Civil War, it was occupied by both the Northern and Southern armies. The Mason Place is currently a bed and breakfast located in Lenoir City.
