On March 5, 1863, the Battle of Thompson’s Station raged around a sweeping 50-acre property and one Williamson County plantation home.
On Thursday, May 2, Homestead Manor will commemorate 150 years since the skirmish with its grand re-opening as an event venue site from 6-9 p.m….. and Puckett’s Trolley is going to be on site to celebrate with these guys!
Y’all are all excited to celebrate the ca. 1816 historic landmark—a property that was as a ground-zero site for 6,000 Civil War soldiers—which will now serve as a private venue for community and corporate events, weddings and more. The open house event will showcase the versatility of Homestead Manor, as well as give everyone a first look at the newly renovated (fabulous, as Ms. Dolly Parton would say!) space.
The evening will include guest speakers who will educate partygoers on the manor’s heritage, and a special re-enactment of historical events pertaining to the location. In addition to music, entertainment and other activities, Pour Taste, Java Breeze, Puckett’s Trolley and Lipman Bros. will offer complimentary food and refreshments. Beer, wine and additional food will be available for purchase at a suggested $1 donation. A portion of the proceeds will go to support the Heritage Foundation of Franklin & Williamson County.
Today Homestead Manor is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and the property has a conservation easement through The Land Trust of Tennessee.
It is managed by Puckett’s Events, an events company owned by Andy and Jan Marshall of our Puckett’s family of restaurants (that’s us!). Hope to see y’all there.
