The homesite of the Joy Plantation land during the 18th century, this was the home of General White. This Famous war of 1812 general was shot famously in a duel over who would become post master by Sam Houston, who later went on to found Houston, Texas. General Whites' grave is marked on the adjacent property.
In the 20th century the Joy family sold the farmstead to The Holkamp family from Germany. They are currently the largest producer of African violets in the world. This industrial like farm is located in the rear of the Mansion.
Host of several music videos from Nashvilles' best. The Black Keys, Comedy Central, Luke Bryan, Brett Eldredge, Paramore and more have all been through here and left their mark and their own story. Also home to the Luck Reunion sessions of 2016 by Third Man Records, Jack Whites' record label. You can catch the videos they did here on youtube.
Catch a sun set over the trees on the West facing country porch. Watch the sun rise on the 3rd floor crow nest balcony. Enjoy a quiet tranquil backyard with the faint sounds of a bustling downtown in the far distance. Build a fire in the outdoor fireplace. Enjoy the stars and the peeper frogs. Turn on the outdoor lights, have a drink by the fireplace and enjoy the cool Nashville air. My home is nicely furnished and you'll find it quite cozy.
This is not a place to throw parties.
