Traveller's Rest is probably one of the more underrated Nashville attractions, but is definitely worth visiting. The house is one of the oldest surviving structures of its kind in Tennessee and home to Judge John Overton, a man who played a prominent role in shaping Tennessee history as well as the career of Andrew Jackson. While Traveller's Rest is not one of the more lavishly decorated plantation homes in Middle Tennessee, it still has several objects of interest and stories to tell. A portion of the Civil War Battle of Nashville was fought in the vicinity. The site is also a Mississippian (prehistoric Native American) burial ground and some archeological artifacts are on display in the house. History lovers should put this on their "must see" list.
