Historic Rock Castle

Historic Rock Castle

Located on Old Hickory Lake in Hendersonville, Rock Castle is two miles south of Gallatin Road (Highway 31E) off Indian Lake Road. It remains one of Tennessee’s most important structures of the early Republic. Its noteworthy architectural character reflects the taste of a man of culture and education who chose to build a new life for himself and his family on the frontier. Be sure to watch for Daniel Smith Days, a two-day re-enactment and Colonial fair, that is held the last weekend of September each year on the grounds.

Hours: Always closed Mondays. Daily hours vary by season, so please contact office for current hours.
