The Nancy Jones house, perhaps the most important historic structure in Cary that has no binding preservation status, is one of three Cary properties individually listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The house is in excellent condition, despite being more than 200 years old.
Built around 1803, this is the oldest house in the Cary area. This house served as the primary stagecoach stop and tavern on the Raleigh-Chapel Hill-Hillsborough route in the antebellum period. According to legend, this house was the site of a meeting in 1838 between the governors of North Carolina and South Carolina. President James K. Polk is also said to have visited the Nancy Jones house.
