The was a surprisingly great visit. The house is beautiful and well maintained. Many of the original furnishings were on display. The highlight of the tour was the knowledge and enthusiasm of the guide. She had considerable insight into the history, including the lives of the occupants and the role the plantation played the Battle of Franklin. At $10 admission... More

Rippavilla is clearly a magnificent place and I looked forward to a tour. When I arrived, the person selling tickets, who was apparently also the tour guide, was not to be found. After waiting some minutes and having the bakery clerk search for him, he finally arrived and I got in line to buy tickets; there was only one group... More

Good way to get a taste of what living in Spring Hill was like in its early years. Mr Chairrs was one of the first settlers and had this home built for his family. My husband and I enjoy touring House Museums and this one was very nice. They also have a bakery and gift shop and several trails you... More

Neat place to visit & better understand old southern living. Main house is period furnished. Don't miss driving back trail if it's dry & your vehicle will allow. There you'll find an old slave cemetery & slave cabins

Maury County is the antebellum homes capital of Tennessee. Eighteen plantation houses are listed by the Maury County Historical Society, many of them included on the National Register of Historic Places. Perhaps the most majestic of them all is Rippavilla, located on the Nashville/Columbia Highway or Route 31 near Spring Hill, across the road from the giant Saturn Corporation plant.... More

Great history. Beautiful home and grounds. Some furnishings original. You HAVE to get some cinnamon tools while there. Reheat with a little bit of butter melted on them and they are fantastic ! I bought cinnamon rolls & chocolate chip espresso cookies. Both are very good.

The tour is very well done and informative. William, our guide, had worked at Rippavilla for 17 years and was a wealth of information concerning the house, grounds and history. We are glad we took the time to drive south of Nashville to spend the day in this area. Can be easily toured in conjunction with the James Polk home... More

Rippavilla offers an authentic view of life in a much different time. the plantation gives a visual description of how a working farm thrived. one must take time to stand on the grounds surrounding the "main" house to ponder what was on the minds of the thousands of soldiers that were camped all around Rippavilla not realizing that in a...
