This small house, circa 1795, once was part of the complex of structures at Casso’s Inn, historically a well-frequented establishment in Raleigh, North Carolina. Here Andrew Johnson was born in 1808. His mother was a weaver and his father a hostler (stableman) at the inn. This unassuming wood, 2-story former inn kitchen measures 19’3” x 14’3” and is 24’9” in height. The gambrel roof is shingled; small dormer windows are at front and back, and on the side with no chimney is a tiny 4-pane window. Wooden steps lead to the entrance. The structure has a large double-shoulder chimney.
