Mary Phifer McKenzie House (Sweetwater Branch Inn)
The Mary Phifer McKenzie House, now the Sweetwater Branch Inn, was built in 1895 by lawyer John Lamberth. Designed in the Queen Anne style, which was very popular in the country at the time, the house is one of the better examples of this style in the city. The inn also includes the historic Cushman-Colson House, guest cottages, gardens, and a restaurant called The Sweet Tea Restaurant. The Mckenzie House was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.
