Description

This historic plantation was resurrected in 1954 and from there, the National Society of the Colonial Dames of America in the State of Tennessee made it their goal to preserve the history held within its walls. 

The original building was constructed in 1799, and the amount of history that it holds is simply amazing. Serving as the home to Judge John Overton, it was restored to depict life of the 1800s and features artifacts and exhibits that display this history accurately and interestingly.
