We visited on Labor Day, but unfortunately they were closed. We were able to walk around the grounds and enjoy the beautiful gardens and house. Will take a tour next time....

The home is a pleasure to tour. Our guide was fun and knowledgeable. It's also easy to find right off of I-65 south of Franklin, TN

Having lived in the area for more than a decade, it's surprising that we hadn't ventured out to Rippavilla previously. Since my folks were in town, we thought it would be a fun local outing. The tour guide was very southern and did a nice...More

2-3 hours. There is the guided house tour, signage in the side yard and battlefield, and the family cemetery, slave cemetery, and slave cabin at the rear of the property.

Best to contact "Whispers of the Past Rippavilla Plantation" on Facebook. (I can't post their link but it will pop up in the search box). They run the investigations and will be able to answer based on past experience.

Yes. The guides wont usually tell you unless you ask, but yes, it is very active. Ask for Chuck, he knows his stuff and has been there many years.
