We have a story to tell.
It is the story of an ancient civilization, whose culture, language, and even name is now forgotten.
It is the story of the founding of a city in the wilderness, a period that marked
the end of one culture and the beginning of another.
It is the story of those famous names that once walked these floors.
Names such as Houston, Jackson, and Eaton, who are remembered today as having helped shape a young nation.
It is also the story of others, long since forgotten, who worked the land in terrible
conditions, struggling for the day when they would one day be free.
It is the story of a community ripped apart by war, and the struggle of two great armies for control of Tennessee.
In the end, one army would be vanquished, one would be triumphant, and the beginning of the
end would be in sight for Tennessee’s long nightmare of Civil War.
Historic Travellers Rest Plantation has a story to tell.
It is the story of neighborhoods and families. It is the story of Nashville.
In the end, it is the story of who Historic Travellers Rest Plantation is, where we came from, and where we are going.
