We are a historic house museum - the oldest home in Shelby County. We offer docent-led tours and walking tours to visitors and school groups. In addition to our historic grounds, we have a 6,000 square foot converted barn and reception hall called Hillwood. We host many beautiful weddings each year, as our grounds and lit barn provide a beautiful backdrop for a rustic Southern wedding. Call for an appointment to tour our facilities if you are interested in booking an event.
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.
