  • Took a tour of the house with Benita as our guide. She was terrific! - very personable and knowledgeable. We were very impressed that she had been there only 6 weeks. Unfortunately it began storming a...  more »

  • I am a teacher and went with my middle schoolers to tour Travelers Rest. They offer different types of tours that focus on varied subject matters. We chose the tour that focused on slavery. Our tour guide Tonya was very sweet, incredibly knowledable, and oftered a perspective of slavery that helped my students to understand that all human beings (regardless of skin color or whether they are male or female) deserve basic human rights. I HIGHLY recommend the tour on slavery.
  • BIG area and we went with school Field Trip and I was told NOT to use the FLASH inside the mansion for the photograph..... (I got permission from the staff before taking the picture)
  • Both the house and grounds were fantastic. You start in the museum with a video and artifacts which gives you an idea how the plantation came to be and what happened to it during the war. The house if full of furnishings of the time. The slave cabins go into how the slaves lived and worked on the plantation.
  • Got there 45 mins before closing still had time to walk the grounds Beautiful place!
  • We had a great time on the tour today. Great place for a history lesson on the Battle of Nashville. When you go ask for Kelly, she is a great tour guide.
