Grassmere was built by Col. Michael C. Dunn, it was finished around 1810. It’s the second oldest home open to the public in Davidson County Tennessee. Originally built in the Federal style but was later renovated into the Italianate with the large porches by William Dickson Shute and his wife Lavinia after the Civil war. Together they had four daughters that lived to adulthood.
Isn’t this the perfect spot to sit and relax?
I love the barn on the property! It would be perfect for a harvest party or a barn dance!
Check out our trip to the zoo this year! Or one of our previous trips!
