Built in 1799, Travellers Rest Plantation was home to Judge John Overton, who had close ties with President Andrew Jackson.

By Kelly Thomas
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in Tennessee, Traveller Rest Plantation got its name in relation to how the home made Overton feel after long rides on horseback that he had to undertake as a circuit judge. Built in 1799, the Plantation remained in the hands of Overton's descendants until 1946.

Travellers Rest house tours are $12 for adults, with the Grounds & Exhibit tours costing $10 per person. The house tour includes a guided house tour and access to the Civil War and Slavery Exhibits. The last tour takes place at 4p each day.
