Overview
More
This historic property, located in Bartlett, includes the oldest log home in Shelby County open to the public, thirty-two acres of plantation land, and numerous outbuildings. These outbuildings range from a tenant cabin to a commissary to a gristmill to an outhouse. Additionally, the property contains several gardens, including a kitchen garden and a medicinal herb garden. In the future, visitors will also be able to enjoy an arboretum and nature trails. Our current interpretive program primarily consists of docent-led tours of the log home and a self-guided walking tour of the grounds and outbuildings.

Tour was only our family and the sweet tour guide. Beautiful property, rustic home. Little out of the way but worth it. Deer every place we looked. Seriously great hour or so tour.

WE toured the mansion and the grounds. All in all it is a very beautiful place with well kept grounds. All buildings are well maintained as well as the broad landscape. This place would be good for young children,school field trips or weekend excursions.

This is great place to visit an see frontier houses. Some of the out side houses where moved to this plantation from different parts of Tennessee. It's worth the money.
