The Zachery-Tolbert House, also known as the Mordecai Zachary House,[2] is a restored pre-American Civil War house located at Cashiers, Jackson County, North Carolina. The house was built between 1850 and 1852, and is a two-story, five bay Greek Revival style frame dwelling. It has a low hipped roof and central front, two-story, portico. A frame two-room kitchen was added to the rear elevation and was connected to the house by a covered breezeway in the 1920s.[3]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in December 1998.[1]

The house is owned by the Cashiers Historical Society and operated as a historic house museum that features a collection of hand-crafted ‘plain-style’ furniture.[4]
