A magnificent Greek Revival Mansion takes centre stage on Belle Meade Plantation. It used to be one of the South’s largest thoroughbred horse farms. This plantation claims that many great horses can link their ancestry back to this farm. This magnificent Mansion escaped unscathed during the Civil War. There are several buildings for you to tour including the original cabin, carriage houses and stables. The slave cabin exhibit is very informative and the tour concludes with a complimentary wine tasting at the Belle Meade Winery.

Belle Meade has observed centuries of human history. Native tribes used the woods to hunt wild game. Over time European settlers developed a trail and started a trading route throughout the Southeast. In 1806 John Harding purchased land and being a skilled farmer and businessman, he began his new farm. His farm, the Belle Meade Plantation, had diverse operations. To reflect the success of the planation, the house was enlarged. Stucco was applied to cover the red bricks and limestone pillars of Doric order was were established. A two story kitchen extension was also attached to the house via a two level breezeway. Learn history in a more interesting ways than textbook or documentary.
