Polk Place, seen in this photo dated about 1880, no longer exists. It was sold by heirs of President James K. Polk and his wife, Sarah, after the President and his wife died, and later was torn down by a developer.

However, an effort is afoot to move the Polks’ remains from the State Capitol, where they were moved after Polk Place was torn down, to the Polk family home in Columbia. That effort has not gone uncontested. Overton County Executive Ben Danner joined a group of 72 county executives who have voiced support for the move.
