 The imposing main block of [[boone county|Boone County'​s]] northernmost [[historic homes|home]] was built on River Road near [[Hebron]] c.[[1797]] by [[Cave Johnson]], the first County Clerk. ​ Like other early riverfront residences in Boone County, the Cave Johnson House originally fronted on the [[Ohio River]] but was later remodeled with a formal entrance facing River Road.  At the time of its construction,​ Johnson'​s friend, future-President,​ William Henry Harrison lived on the opposite shore of the river in North Bend, Ohio.  The two men frequently crossed the river to visit. The imposing main block of [[boone county|Boone County'​s]] northernmost [[historic homes|home]] was built on River Road near [[Hebron]] c.[[1797]] by [[Cave Johnson]], the first County Clerk. ​ Like other early riverfront residences in Boone County, the Cave Johnson House originally fronted on the [[Ohio River]] but was later remodeled with a formal entrance facing River Road.  At the time of its construction,​ Johnson'​s friend, future-President,​ William Henry Harrison lived on the opposite shore of the river in North Bend, Ohio.  The two men frequently crossed the river to visit.

 The c.[[1800]] brick [[slavery|slave]] quarters is a one-and-a-half story, four bay building with standing seam roof.  Although modified for use as a garage in the mid-20th century, the building is arguably the most intact one of its kind in Boone County. ​ The c.[[1800]] brick [[slavery|slave]] quarters is a one-and-a-half story, four bay building with standing seam roof.  Although modified for use as a garage in the mid-20th century, the building is arguably the most intact one of its kind in Boone County. ​
