    • «u»Green Acres Farm«/u»
      Walter L. Carter
      The link between early transportation routes, farm location and the development of local commerce and industry can again be seen in the history of the Green Acres Farm, established by William Carter in 1803. William located his original 200 acres east of the Mascot community, at an advantageous site along the Nashville to Washington, D. C. road. The house that he built for his wife Ann Yale and their nine children also became a stage coach inn for travelers. Family tradition states that Andrew Jackson, on his inaugural trip to Washington in 1829, stayed there. Besides managing the farm and the inn, the Carters also owned an iron foundry in the early 1800s.
      In 1816, Winston Carter and James Madison Carter inherited an 872 acre farm from their parents. Winston later turned over his portion of the property to his brother and moved to Sevier County. James, a stagecoach driver, used his cash income to build a grist mill on the farm. In 1861, he willed the homeplace and land to his son Martin B. Carter, III.
      For the next 91 years, the land continued to pass through generations of the Carter family. The founder's great great grandsons, Walter and William Carter, jointly inherited 350 acres of the family land in 1952. The farm has since been divided into two separate farms and Walter's Green Acres Farm now has 240 acres. Walter and his nephew Stephen work the land, specializing in hay, cattle and tobacco production.
