The A. C. Beatie House, in the Smyth County town of Chilhowie, was constructed in 1891 as the home of Alonzo Claibourne Beatie, a locally prominent political leader and farmer. Built by local carpenter and builder William Pendleton, the Beatie House features Queen Anne detailing and retains unaltered evidence of Pendleton’s craftsmanship with scroll-sawn brackets, ornamental interior woodwork, and graining. The property also contains contemporary agricultural outbuildings as well as a site that comprises the ruins of Town House, a regionally important dwelling constructed in phases after 1770 and owned by the Beatie family since 1837.
