This mansion is open for tours between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Had a chance to tour last Saturday, and found this circa 1847 house to be full of interesting items. This felt more like a home, than being full of museum quality furnishings, and it was nice for a change of pace. There's a nice printed guide that you... More

My fiance took me here on a date once and it was absolutely beautiful! There is a lot of rich history in this area! Also it's a great place to have a beautiful wedding!

The mansion is closed for remodeling but you can walk the grounds. Plaques along the way explain what you are seeing and give insight to the time period. Beautiful spot.

Dates back pre-Civil War. Still a beautiful place to visit! Rumor has it that during the Battle of Chickamauga the surgeons had a stack of human limbs piled up outside the windows from all the soldiers who became amputees because of the war. It was a little bloody there in September 1863!

Great example of the times. Artifacts depict events of the times. Haunting to think it was once a field hospital. Worth the visit.

I had a wonderful experience on several occasions at the Mansion interacting with the grounds keeper. I was on site taking pictures as a tourist and witnessed the grounds keeper addressing a professional photographer explaining that this is a nationally registered historic location with a policy in place regarding professional photography. He simply stated that they need to get permission... More

Just walking around with friends and family snapping a few photos, the grounds keeper was a complete jerk to my sister and to our family and another lady and her family that was there and asked if she had a business license to shoot any photos on the property. I feel as though it is a public place, no one... More
