The home is a pleasure to tour. Our guide was fun and knowledgeable. It's also easy to find right off of I-65 south of Franklin, TN

2-3 hours. There is the guided house tour, signage in the side yard and battlefield, and the family cemetery, slave cemetery, and slave cabin at the rear of the property.

Best to contact "Whispers of the Past Rippavilla Plantation" on Facebook. (I can't post their link but it will pop up in the search box). They run the investigations and will be able to answer based on past experience.

Yes. The guides wont usually tell you unless you ask, but yes, it is very active. Ask for Chuck, he knows his stuff and has been there many years.
