Belle Meade Historic Site & Winery
Belle Meade Plantation, located in Belle Meade, Tennessee, is a historic mansion that is now operated as a museum, together with outbuildings on its 30 acres of property. In the late 19th century, the plantation encompassed roughly 5,400 acres.
A winery and visitors’ center have been constructed on the property. Preserved original outbuildings, including the Harding cabin, dairy, carriage house, stable, and mausoleum may also be seen. Since about 2004, the managers of the plantation have begun to concentrate on how to tell the stories of African Americans who were enslaved at the plantation and worked there after the Civil War. This emphasis resulted in reconstructing a typical slave cabin, which held two families. Check out the zoo too!
