Nestled in Middle TN along Columbia Pike in the heart of the Thompson's Station is Homestead Manor Plantation. The house and property was the site of the Battle of Thompson Station which was fought in 1863. Open Tuesday through Sunday, this historic home offers a Civil War period setting that today offers a very peaceful destination for lunch, tea, and special events.
