Visiting the Sam Davis Home was a great way to spend an afternoon. At the time we were the only visitors (3 of us) and got first rate treatment from the guide. The house itself was family owned until it was turned over the state. It was never in the possession of any other families so it never had to... More

This historic home and museum is a wonderful gem of Tennessee history. The small museum was very well done. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and family friendly. We went in October so they staged one of the rooms of the house for a funeral. Fun way to add a little Halloween fun to the tour. That was certainly added... More

It was also Educational and I love the how everything seemed accessable not like a stuffy museum, they still had the red ropes up but the guides were friendly. They had snacks that they offered...

This is the best kept secret in Middle Tennessee. The house itself is interesting - the tour guides are very knowledge. The children in our group really enjoyed themselves - there is room for them to move about outside without too much danger (there is a creek though - so adult supervision still required). We live across the street (literally)... More

Came here for a family reunion. We had an old cabin with a fireplace, kitchen. Kinda small for 50+ people, but we made do with chairs outside. The grounds are very clean & maintained. They had a vintage baseball game going on. Nice place for pictures. They have a nice small museum & house to tour for $10. Small gift... More

After living in Smyrna for all of my life, and only having visited this local gem a couple of times (for field trips)...oh how it was nice to return as an adult. I have been back to take outdoor photos, don't get me wrong - the grounds are beautiful, but to re-take the tour as an adult was really chock... More

My friends and I toured this facility on Oct. 3, 2013. We really enjoyed this home. There was a lot of information given that I had never known before. The tour guide told us about the was and how Sam had joined and how brave and devoted he was. The home was actually his parents since he was only 21... More

Our docent, Lee was an amazing historian. He had so many time period facts and asked questions during the tour to keep us engaged. The grounds, house and garden are well taken care of and many original artifacts are in museum. Strongly encourage the film before the tour to freshen up your memory of history.

Our tour guide name Lee was so much fun to hang out for an hour with. For an hour we were taken back in time and able to connect with the way things were done. Fascinating story about Sam and the time period that he lived. I woulld suggest watching to movie in the Museum before taking the tour.
