Weddings & Events Venue

Historic Travellers Rest Plantation provides a state of the art venue for Nashville’s weddings, business meetings and special events. Our Plantation provides facilities for weddings, private parties and special events.

Outdoor events enjoy the intimate formal garden or the spacious feel of events that spread out across the naturally-beautiful historic grounds. While rental events do not take place in the historic house, house tours are always an option and are a nice addition for your guests.

Make your wedding, private event or corporate function part of history too!  Schedule your special event in our Formal Garden, Historic Grounds or the Barn today!
