The Tellico Street location of Bert’s Hometown Grill was built in 1917 by Arvil Harrill. The house, commonly known as the Meek Hicks residence was actually built for Colonel J.C. Spurling, who was Monroe County Court Clerk. Colonel Spurling died in 1948, and the house and farm land was purchased by the M.L. Hicks family. During the development of the Monroe Plaza Shopping Center, the house changed hands several times. It was then purchased by the partnership of Blankenship and White in the summer of 1987. A Pizzeria was in operation for many years until 1997 when a grill was added. In 1998 it became Bert’s Hometown Grill & Pizzeria.Directly across Tellico Street & beyond Wal-Mart is the Kefauver house. The stately house, designed by a Philadelphia architect & built pre Civil War, was the home of  Mrs. Lottie Johns, aunt of the late Senator Estes Kefauver. The late Senator ran for vice president of the United States in 1956 on the Democrat ticket with Adlai Stevenson. Senator Kefauver is buried in the family cemetery on the grounds.
