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. During winter, local organizations fill the home with over 20 Christmas trees decorated and sparkling.
In 1998, the mansion was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The home makes a beautiful setting for weddings, wedding photography, and receptions. It is also available for other private event rentals.
