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

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

I usually go there for holidays like Easter and Halloween. Their Halloween tour is the only one I have been on and it was fun. 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
