The Smith-Trahern Mansion is currently closed to the public due to COVID 19. Built in 1858 by wealthy tobacconist Christopher 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. The home boasts grand hallways, an exquisite curved staircase and a widow's walk on the roof. During the winter months, 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's also available for other private event rentals.
