The Oaklands Mansion is not only a plantation home listed on the National Register of Historic Places and beautiful example of classic Italianate architecture, but it’s also one of the more affordable plantation tours in the Nashville area. This ticket includes a guided tour of the 200-year-old mansion with a knowledgeable docent, plus a self-guided tour of the grounds and parking at no extra expense.

The dam is a really unique place in Murfreesboro. There are many spots that you can see the river, and witness the amazing power of water. I think the area could use a good cleanup, as it seems that people use it as a dumping ground. I was a little disappointed in the quality of the road down to it. The Greenway trail is a nice addition though.

it is interesting to note how water was used in those days of yore for electricity before big dams arrived on the scene

If you have not been here yet, you should know that while it is a great place, families with younger kids may want to use caution. When you park, it is a very short walk to the river bank, but you do have to walk down a small hill that can be slippery if it is wet. The banks along the river downstream of the "falls" are all small rocks. So best to bring shoes. Finally, the current can be swift, especially after a rain. That being said, we love to come here and just listen to the sound of the "falls" and wade out into the cool water. There is a boat launch located in the same area, and you can climb to the top of the "falls" for swimming as well. It tends to be deeper and has less current.

The Walter Hill Hydroelectric Station is a beautiful place to visit. You can feel the powerfully charged falls when you get close to them. At the bottom it is very loud, but it gets quiet as you make your way to the top. It was a gorgeous day out when we visited. There were people fishing, reading in lounge chairs, and barbecuing. There is a boat ramp, picnic tables, and trails also available at this location. It is a great place for a day out. It’s so beautiful I feel it is a must see when in the Murfreesboro area.
