Hawthorn Hill Tours

Join us for a tour of Hawthorn Hill, one Saturday a month from April through September. The circa 1805 brick Federal home is preserved as close to its original state as possible and is rarely open for tours. Original stenciling, paint, and plaster make you feel as though you've entered a time capsule of 19th century Middle Tennessee history. Tours are limited and only offered one Saturday a month - don't miss out on this unique experience!
