“Southern charm at its finest”

Built between 1828 – 1832, the home was host to many well known Tennesseans such as President Andrew Jackson, Jefferson Davis and General N.B. Forest. Confederate General Leonidas Polk planed the battle of Corinth in the home and General U.S. Grant later used the house as his headquarters where he devised the Vicksburg campaign. The home also served as a Union hospital. After the war, one of the first schools for freed slaves was built on the property by the Freedman’s Bureau. HISTORY • Oldest most preserved house in Memphis • Listed on the National Register of Historic Places • Extensive Civil War History • Designed by Robert Mills; architect of the Washington Monument
