My family recently visited the Same Davis Home and were nothing but impressed with the experience. We started with a brief movie about Sam Davis, and then there was a nice museum area that we were able to explore. When we finished our tour guide began the tour. We had a very small tour group, so the experience was very personal and informative. We got lots of good information about Sam Davis, his family, and life during the civil war time. Our tour guide was awesome. She gave a detailed tour, allowed us ample time to ask questions and look at all the rooms and buildings. I would highly recommend this tour. My family went with two teenage sons and we all greatly enjoyed the experience. It was an excellent value.
Very interesting place there are two historical homes in Rutherford county the tour here thou less grand home is by far a better tour. This my personal view.
