The Russey-Murray House in Nashville was built circa 1861-1862 and is known as the first brick house built west of the Mississippi and south of St. Louis, Missouri. It is in its original location and at one time had a wood kitchen and summer kitchen adjoining the house though they have long since been torn down. It had a very wide hall that was enclosed and made into two rooms years ago. However, in 2011 the house collapsed and was demolished and subsequently removed from the National Register of Historic Places.
