Stopped by on a tour. Friendly staff. The home is well maintained by the SCV. The home was raided and set on fire by the Yankees, but Rebel cavalry came to the rescue and doused the fire before damage was done.

Elm Springs is a beautiful Antebellum Home in Columbia, TN. This home has been well taken care of and our tour guide was so friendly and informative. The admission price is only $5.00 per person and that is a bargin!
