Abstract:

The Childers House is located at Fort Campbell, Kentucky the house is located in Montgomery County, Tennessee. The Childers family built the house during the years of 1938 and 1939. The cultural resources firm of Dennison and OMalley found the building ineligible for National Register of Historic Places NRHP nomination in 1977, determining that the house did not meet the NRHP Criteria. A more detailed report in the 1990s concurred with the 1977 evaluation however, in 1997, the Tennessee State Historic Preservation Officer SHPO made a determination that the Childers House appeared to be eligible for listing on the NRHP under Criterion C architecture due to a resemblance to Gunston Hall, Virginia. The Fort Campbell Integrated Cultural Resources Management Plan ICRMP recommended a complete documentation and re-evaluation of the building. This report satisfies Section 110 of the National Historic Preservation Act NHPA of 1966 as amended and will help the Fort Campbell Cultural Resources Office and Directorate of Public Work in managing this historic building.
