This was my third visit to Sam Davis Home. I live in Florida and strive to visit Civil War sites and those especially of our true southern heroes. Sam Davis is one. The home and grounds are beautiful. Visiting the family gravesite is inspiring. This is a must see. Thanks to Ryan for a great tour.

I had the chance to visit Sam Davis Home, which was wonderful especially because of the tour guide Lee Lankford who not only had a vast knowledge of the house's history and of the civil war, but also because we was able to transmit the information in a funny and precise war. I recommend the tour!

This was a very interesting story about a civil war soldier that was hung at age 21 as a traitor because he would not divulge the name of his captain during the war. He was not a traitor but was certainly coerced "tell" and did not. The homestead is interesting, the story is interesting but very sad. War is sad,... More

My grandson who was suspended from school and I recently visited the Sam Davis Home, as I had told him that he may not be in school, but he was going to learn something. He is 14. Our tour guide was Mr. Lee Lankford. His knowledge and respect for the Davis family made our visit exceptional. My 14 yr old... More

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.
