More than just a farm, Belle Meade Plantation features a mansion, a winery, and was once the premier breeding farm for American Thoroughbreds in the South. The Harding-Jackson family lived here for over a hundred years. Bullet holes and other damage from the Civil War are still evident on the exterior of the Greek Revivalist mansion, and the winery is fully operational and produces traditional Southern wines like Muscadine and Blackberry. Overall, a visit here is a fascinating look into the area’s history.
