I took my two grandsons early on a Tuesday morning to visit the Sam Davis Home. Lee Lankford met us at the Visitors Center and showed us both the house and grounds, gearing each experience to the boys and their interests. His comments and questions sparked their interest in the period and especially in the bravery of Sam Davis. I... More

My boyfriend and I were looking for something to do in Smyrna and happened to find the Sam Davis Home. We showed up around 1pm and ended up having a fantastic afternoon. Both of us are history buffs and were delighted to find this place. We started to walk around on our own, but were able to jump in on... More

This puts a very personal touch to the civil war. The house and grounds are very nice and the staff very accommodating. We didn't' have time for a full tour so they let us have a special showing of the movie and answered our questions. Watch for special events here if you live nearby there are various dinners and picnics... More

My children and I noticed the sign for the Sam Davis Home in Smyrna during one of our week long trips to Smyrna with my husband. While he was at work, my children and I decided to visit as a field trip (they are homeschooled). My children who are 16 and 8 both loved hearing the stories that our guide,... More

Step back into the past as you tour the childhood home of a Civil War soldier. You first watch a film about the life of Sam Davis, and there is a museum to visit after your tour of the property. Hewitt took me on a tour of the grounds and home, he did an excellent job.

A visit to the Sam Davis home brings to life how families lived during the Civil War period. After a short video about the life of Sam Davis, Confederate scout hanged as a spy at only twenty-one, we met our guide Lee Lankford for the hour-long tour of the Davis home. The stories of the life and times of the... More

Lee Lankford gave us one of the best historic tours that we have ever taken. He was very knowledgable about Sam Davis's life and his family.

Lee Lankford led our group as he passionately shared about the life of the Davis family and the Civil War. It is not hard to feel emotions swell inside as you learn of our country's history from a true lover of our heritage. We were enraptured by the details shared of not only Sam Davis, but his family and the... More

My husband and I live about 45 minutes away from the Sam Davis Home and had never visited it before. We were so impressed with the quality of the whole experience. The museum is excellent. The house and grounds and outbuildings are well kept, beautiful, and historical. History is everywhere and our guide, Lee Lankford, really made it come alive.... More
