Welcome to the Historic Sam Davis Home and Plantation, a historic treasure set on 168 serene acres in the heart of Smyrna, Tennessee. Open February through December, the site welcomes guests for tours, field trips, an array of special events, weddings and other special occasions, and so much more. 

Built in the early 1800's, this Greek Revival style home is one of the top cultural and historic attractions in Smyrna, Rutherford County, and Middle Tennessee. With approximately 20,000 visitors per year, the atmosphere of the site varies between a hum of activity and a tranquil park. 

With two historic homes, several outbuildings, the family cemetery, and over 100 of the Davis family's personal affects on display, visitors to the Historic Sam Davis Home are able to take a step back in time and get a true sense of 19th century life.
