May Focus: Historic Sam Davis Home & Plantation

The Murfreesboro Post, May 24, 2018

The Historic Sam Davis Home and Plantation is set on 168 serene acres in the heart of Smyrna. This Greek Revival home is one of the top cultural and historic attractions in Middle Tennessee. On the grounds, you’ll find two historic homes, several outbuildings, slave quarters, the family cemetery and more than 100 of the Davis family’s personal effects on display, giving you the ability to take a step back in time and get a true sense of 19th century life. Open February through December, the site welcomes guests for tours at the top of every hour during business hours.
