Travellers Rest

The 1799 Home
Judge John Overton

Weddings & Events Venue

Established in 1799, Historic Travellers Rest is the oldest, public house museum in Nashville. A true gem nestled just a few miles outside of the hustle and bustle of downtown, Historic Travellers Rest is the venue to say "I do!" with its rich history and idyllic grounds.

With large magnolia trees, a beautiful formal garden, and grassy meadows, Travellers Rest exudes southerm charm. Ceremonies  and special events can take place outside under a canopy of trees against the backdrop of white fences or the historic home itself. Indoor events enjoy our modern day crib barn with a Tennessee limestone fireplace, high ceilings, and beautiful wooden beams. 

Say "yes" to Historic Travellers Rest and let your memories become a part of our history!
