Notes
Survey number HABS TN-80

Building/structure dates: 1832 initial construction
Significance: The structure is a fine example of the plantation architecture popular in Tennessee during the 1830-1845 period. Classic details in ornamentation were combined with a Georgian-type structure to create a home of unusual grace and style. Isaac Franklin, the first owner of this vast plantation, was a wealthy landholder whose large property inventory included seven plantations in Louisiana.
