The first thing I see when I drove up this beautiful drive was 30 Southern Belles in hoop skirts playing games on the green lawn , under the impressive huge trees! I was so overwhelmed! I felt like I stepped back in time! I parked and walked over to a... More

On June 17, 1915, my husband and I wanted a 54th anniversary get-away that was close to home. We thought about Murfreesboro and went online to see the attractions available. Having traveled to many states and touring dozens of historic homes, I was excited to see the good reviews for Oaklands. I have extensively studied the Civil War and am... More

As is the case with many historic homes, it was on the brink of ruin. Beautiful building and grounds with a long story predating the Civil War. Tour guide (sorry, forgot his name) was very good, said he was new but it did not show.

The tour is informative but not stuffy. I felt like I learned more about the town too. The new visitors center is very nice. If you like history I recommend a visit

Was a nice visit, little pricy for just a tour of the house. Tour guides first time giving a tour, he did great and believable. The story and restoration of the home is beautiful.

A treasure to review :) If you enjoy historical homes, this would be a good pick. It is amazing how the times have changed our living choices. There is a large amount of history to capture in this historical home.

Oaklands provides a unique experience nestled in the very heart of Murfreesboro. What a hidden gem! Yesterday, our tour guide, Connor, treated our group of ladies to an informative tour of the mansion that was both entertaining and enlightening. He did a great job of answering our wide range of questions about the history of this beautiful home, the people... More

A group of us women (15) toured this fabulous mansion and the exhibit "Wedding Dresses through the Decades". When I booked this tour I was more interested in seeing the exhibit of the wedding dresses than the mansion. When I entered the mansion I felt as if I had taken a step back in time. The house was beautifully decorated... More

I got here early in the day so had a private tour with Mac as my guide. He was friendly and personable and had a reasonably good grasp on the history of this place. It was founded around the 1820s and built up by the Maney family, a wealthy and prestigious local clan descended from French Huguenots. Like many houses... More
