The Warner Price Mumford Smith House, also known as Old Home Place, is a historic two-story cedar-plank I-house with a Greek Revival portico in Mount Juliet, Tennessee, U.S.[2] The land was granted to Private Charles Webb; the house later belonged to John Bell Vivrett.[2] It was purchased by Warner Price Mumford Smith and his wife, Augusta Amelia Houser in 1853; the Smiths owned a flour mill and a stagecoach stop.[2] Their son, Robert Edmund Lee Smith, purchased the house in 1909; it was inherited by their daughter Dora Smith Moser in 1967, and by their grandson, Michael F. Moser, in 1991.[2] It has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since July 22, 1993.[3]

The anarchist publisher Ross Winn was married to Augusta "Gussie" Smith, and the two lived together in this house from 1900 until Winn's death from tuberculosis in 1912.[4] During this time he published the newspaper Winn's Firebrand, and later The Advance, from this house.
