A Day at the Sam Davis home, Frank Caperton, November 25, 2016
When was the last time you visited the Sam Davis Home and Plantation? I’ll be the first to admit – it has been far too long since my last visit. I spent a beautiful November afternoon at Smyrna’s Sam Davis Home and Plantation.
Did you know the Sam Davis Memorial Association (SDMA) began in 1930 when the State of Tennessee issued a charter to the newly formed organization to preserve the memory of Sam Davis?
Did you know the ‘main part’ of the house was built between 1810 and 1820? Also, the Sam Davis Home sits on 168 acres VERY peaceful acres. Three single-pen slave cabins and one dogtrot slave cabin were moved to the property in the 1940s to interpret the lives of the enslaved on the plantation.
Oh my, is the Sam Davis Home active. Visit Sam Davis Home and Plantation, like ’em on Facebook and watch their calendar.
