Historic Travellers Rest

Historic Travellers Rest



Travellers Rest is the oldest historic house museum open to the public in Nashville. Their primary mission is history education and we serve more than 12,000 children and adult visitors each year. Our programs and events cover 1000 years of history, from Mississippian settlement through the 19th century using the cultural resources at the 1799 home built by John Overton.
