Sam Davis home is a great place to visit and learn some history about the life of Sam Davis and how he was a hero during the Confederate war.

I mean, the history and story of Sam Davis is a great story and he was a true hero but you can only see a few things in the house and on the grounds. If you're looking for a way to spend a lazy day, check it out.

If you have never been to The Sam Davis home you need to visit. It has been well preserved to remember the respected Sam Davis who only lived to the age of 21. The grounds are just beautiful it is located on the banks of Stewarts Creek. If you love historic homes make this your next trip.

The Sam Davis House is in mourning in October. Decorated in a way that is spooky to us today but would have just been sad in Sam Davis' day. The Civil War was like most wars, there were heroics and stories that would transcend their era. And in the case of the United States of America, we can be grateful... More

I visited the Sam Davis house in Smyrna, Tn for the annual Halloween ghost tour. Was a $10 entrance fee for adults. We arrived at dark so couldn't see much of the grounds. There is no electricty in home so all candle lit, very creepy. They had a awesome gift shop, very clean and neat place. We boarded a hayride... More

We went on a field trip and I felt there were plenty of engaging activities for the kids. They had flyers up for upcoming events and it appears that they have a lot of halloween family fun.

We toured the home and grounds on a deary afternoon, but only the weather was dreary. The tour guide had recently started working there. It was her life's dream to work there and her enthusiasm was great! The video is a must see so you truly understand all that happened to the family. The museum is very well laid out... More

We had a wonderful afternoon at the Sam Davis Home. There were some guys playing live music on the porch and you could hear them all over the grounds. There is a modern gift shop with SUPER CLEAN restrooms. This is a secluded location surrounded by cotton fields. The main house is beautiful and the guide was very knowledgeable. He... More

This is an average home to tour; however, the story of Sam Davis as a Confederate war hero is very interesting. He is something of a state hero with memorials all over the place. Our guide was not great, but we were glad we took this tour and learned about Sam, a true hero at age 21. Overall this tour... More
