The home has been closed since 2022 and will only be open for tours throughout Summer 2024 before interior renovations begin later this year.

Built in 1858 by wealthy tobacconist Christopher H. Smith, this majestic antebellum home overlooks the Cumberland River. Constructed during the troubled pre-Civil War era, the architecture reflects Greek Revival and Italianate styles. It is believed that architect Adolphus Heiman designed the building. The home boasts grand hallways, an exquisite curved staircase, and a widow's walk on the roof. 

In 1998, the mansion was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Guided tours are offered every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from June 1 through August 10 at 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM. Tours are $5 per person.
