Today I’m excited to show you snapshots of another place Bjorn and I toured on our Tennessee road trip!
We spent time at the beautiful Carnton Plantation one afternoon. Carnton was built in 1826, and was used as a hospital for soldiers during the Battle of Franklin in the Civil War. The mansion is drenched in history and exudes such timeless grace. The grounds themselves are breathtaking! We also toured the inside of the house (which is so fun! Bjorn always sketches out the floor plan during the tour!) but the pictures I’m sharing with you today are of the gardens and the exterior.
^ The exterior looks lovely from here, but it only gets more impressive the closer you get! ^
^^ What a magnificent porch!! ^^
^^ This tree was actually at Carnton Plantation during the Civil War, witnessing the battle that took place there. ^^
Have you visited a historic plantation before? Do you have any historic sites to recommend to us? We’ll add ’em to the list! 🙂
