Birthplace of Two Governors

Record #:
The Swain House, a log cabin about 5 miles north and east of Asheville, became the birthplace of two governors. George Swain built the home in the late 18th-century after leaving the constitutional convention in Louisville. Two cousins born in the home, David Lowrie Swain and Joseph Lane, became governors of North Carolina and Oregon respectively.
