Constructed circa 1770, this log structure is considered to be the birthplace of Emory & Henry College. In this house, Tobias Smyth and the Reverend Creed Fulton chose the names of John Emory and Patrick Henry for the College. Smyth, Fulton, Col. William Byars and Andrew Findlay made the first gifts for the purchase of the Crawford Farm to be the site of the College. In 1929, the Tobias Smythe house was moved to its current location from the original site about a mile north of campus.
