Historic Wyatt Hall Tour for 6 and Tea in the Gardens

This unforgettable and rare experience gives a glimpse into a historic home that is older than the town of Franklin itself. You and five guests will tour the grounds of this gorgeous, idyllic property with the owners and enjoy tea in the gardens.

Wyatt Hall, built between c1800-1810, stands just north of historic downtown Franklin, Tennessee.

Located on an 11.5-acre portion of the original Revolutionary War land grant between Major Anthony Sharp and David McMahon along Columbia Pike, the property is enclosed by historic stacked stone walls and shaded by persimmon, maple, and magnolia trees. Its original spring house - as well as its spring, a branch off Spencer Creek, may still be seen via the road. The house, which is nearly as old as the town of Franklin, is an excellent example of late Federal architecture and remains virtually unaltered structurally.

The house today is a two-story, rectangular-shaped brick building, resting on a hand cut limestone foundation. Only one addition to its first floor - the original breezeway - became the formal dining room, enclosed in the 1840s, connecting the kitchen and smokehouse. Wyatt Hall's interiors retain its original staircase and woodwork as well as its original Federal fireplace mantles and poplar floors.

Even in the historic house museum world, it is a rarity to find a home untouched by the hands of modernization. And while Wyatt Hall is a private residential home, those who have been its caretakers over time, including its current owners, recognize their responsibility to steward the property as a preserved historic home and grounds.
