Nestled among 100 acres of farmland and rolling hills is one of Tennessee’s hidden treasures. Visitors can enjoy a guided tour of the mansion, or a walk through the fields where the Battle of Spring Hill raged, peruse extensive gardens and grounds, hike nature trails, and see outbuildings including one remaining slave quarter. The site also includes a historic 1855 barn, and two cemeteries. There is so much to see and explore!
Rippavilla is a Greek Revivial style mansion built in 1855 by Nathaniel and Susan Cheairs. The main house is over 10,000 square feet, and is filled with many original furnishings and artifacts.
Rippavilla is a must-see for anyone interested in the Civil War, Tennessee history, and southern agriculture.
