Historic Travellers Rest

Travellers Rest Historic House Museum, Inc. is committed to the preservation, research and interpretation of the historic house, collections and grounds that represent life in Middle Tennessee from the Native American period through the Civil War with an emphasis on the period 1789-1833, when Judge John Overton lived there.

The historic house and grounds are held in public trust by the National Society of the Colonial Dames of America in Tennessee and is operated by Travellers Rest Historic House Museum, Inc., a not-for-profit corporation with public membership.

The main objective at Travellers Rest is to inspire the public to explore, experience, and reflect on Nashville’s historic past. As an institution committed to preservation and education, each year thousands of visitors of all ages are introduced to the rich and diverse stories, relationships, and characters that make up our local, regional, and national heritage.
