Step back into the 1850s and admire one of the best maintained plantations in the United States. Once the centrepiece of a 5,400-acre plantation, the Mansion at Belle Meade Plantation is one of the finest examples of a Victorian-era Southern Estate.
Head to Belle Meade Plantation and learn all about its rich history. Today this magnificent plantation is a 30-acre historic site that features guided tours of the 1853 Greek Revival mansion. Join an expert and costumed guide for your tour of the property, and begin your journey to the past.
This 45-minute tour recounts stories of the Harding and Jackson families who lived on this estate for four generations. Learn how they turned what was simply a log cabin and 250 acres into one of the largest and wealthiest private estates in Nashville housing the finest thoroughbred stud farm of the 19th century.
After your guided tour is complete, you will be escorted over to our on-site Winery where you will taste our award-winning wines…the perfect ending to a memorable tour.
