Nashville, Tennessee — Travellers Rest

Monday: We learned our lesson from the Clover Bottom Mansion and called ahead to Travellers Rest. The lady on the phone assured me that we could walk in and take the tour right away. Nice.

But when we got there, the same lady assured me that we would have to wait twenty or twenty-five minutes for the tour. Le sigh!

Luckily, we were able to walk around the grounds of Travellers Rest, where they have plenty of historic markers and restored outbuildings.

Some of the outbuildings had open doors with little exhibits inside. For example–

Travellers Rest is like the other house museums we’ve seen so far, in that originally the house was much, much smaller. They added on to the house several times over the years before they found what they wanted.

The weather was still kinda nasty, so we didn’t stay too long. We did, however, get to see little pumpkins before we left.
