Romance, Manners, Hope, War and Loss. It is all in evidence here at Oaklands. An invested staff relates the history of the plantation which is integral to the history of Murfreesboro. They always have something going on of value to see. Dont just go once ...more is to learn with each visit. A definate Must-See if in the area. A cute gift shop too!

Try to visit during Nov & Dec. to see this lovely home decorated for Christmas. The Stones River Garden Club ladies have added gorgeous arrangements in every room, all made from natural elements such as greenery, cotton plant, pinecones, dried fruits, etc.

We had a very interesting and informative tour with Bob as our guide. Bob took the extra time to answer all of our questions. The tour started with a video and than about a 50 minute tour of the house after that we walked the grounds. We also recommend the Stone River museum and battle sight which is very close by and allow at least an hour there to read all the information provided and watch the video. A driving tour is also at the Stone River visitors center area.

Our tour guide was great. We had been to Oaklands before but this was the best ever. She was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and even offered to take pictures with our camera for us. Great visit.

This is an extremely well done restoration which provides tremendous insight into the past. The video wasn't working the day we were there, so we probably missed some useful background, but our tour guide was quite informative. I would have liked to linger even longer. If you're like me and don't find the exterior appealing, don't be deterred! This is definitely worth a visit.
