This stunning plantation, outbuildings, grounds, and winery are full of history and beauty.

John Harding first bought 250 acres in 1807 and lived in a log cabin on this property. He bred thoroughbred horses and eventually his holding grew to 5,300 acres with a self sufficient plantation. During its heyday, there was also a blacksmith, mill, dairy, conservatory, hundreds of animals, and 3 limestone quarries. In 1820, Harding commissioned a mansion to be built and the limestone rock came from the quarries on his property. It features a Federal Style architecture and was named after the beautiful meadow between the log cabin that he first lived in. This mansion is known as "Belle Meade" which means beautiful meadow.

The property currently has 30 acres and many replica out buildings for visitors to view. There are mansion tours where visitors learn about the Harding and Jackson families that made the mansion their home. The Journey to Jubilee tour tells the stories of the slaves that worked and lived at Belle Meade before and after the Emancipation. President Andrew Jackson had his horses boarded here and many Presidents and first ladies visited, such as President Taft, President Roosevelt, and President Cleveland. There are game courts, a restaurant, and a fantastic gift shop along with a creamery that sells fudge and ice cream. Enjoy your time at Belle Meade, one of the largest estates in Nashville.
