Go up the path and park on the side of the gravel driveway. The entrance for tours and gift shop are on the side of the house (not the front). Tour takes about 45 min and the gift shop has a lot of books and information that you will not find at other civil war sites in the area.

Really enjoyed our visit there. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. Very friendly and took us through the history of the home before, during, and after the civil war. Was almost burned down by the Yankees. Thankfully it was saved by the servants who put the fire out, and the arrival of the Confederate army. Reccomend visiting anytime you are... More

We happened to visit on a day that there were no tours but as we were standing in the front yard wondering what to do, the executive director called to us from the balcony and invited us inside where he had a lady give us a tour. We enjoyed the personal tour of the home and headquarters of the Sons... More

I had been here once before several years ago. This is a historical house dating back to the early 1800s. They have a tour of the house that is very interesting and informational. I did not bother with the tour this time, which is free by the way. I stopped by the bookstore to see what historical books were available... More

Elm Springs is a beautiful Antebellum Home in Columbia, TN. This home has been well taken care of and our tour guide was so friendly and informative. The admission price is only $5.00 per person and that is a bargin!

What can I say about this awesome establishment? To me is one of the most beautiful homes in Columbia, TN. The home and the grounds are stellar. I feel very confident in saying this because my wife actually grew up in this home. Go see this awesome home!!!!

A lovely young woman gave my friend and me a very informative tour of this beautiful house furnished with many original pieces. After visiting so many homes where they don't allow photography, it was refreshing to be allowed to take pictures of anything we liked. The young woman was very enthusiastic about this house and the people that had lived... More

Liked the stories and architecture that went with this house. No charge to tour and no other people to tour so we got a free private tour. Nice!
