This is the window in the Front stairwell. You can see the tin roof.

This is the back stairwell

I thought that I wrote this lady's name down, but unfortunately I didn't!
I do remember that our guide, Madi Rose said that she knew of know connection to the Davis family, and that this lady is from Murfreesboro. Perhaps they were friends.
The painting is an AMAZING piece of work, as far as I'm concerned.

Each dish is painted with a different scene. My daughter, Sidney, was allowed to go behind the scenes to look at each one individually. Go Sid! She also found an old newspaper in the fireplace tucked up in the chimney part.
It said something to the nature of "Kidnapped Child 3 Back With Parents."

The duster in the background was actually a shoo-fly. It was made with peacock feathers from the birds on the farm there, and bound using leather to a wicker woven handle.

This was actually the dining table, according to Sidney. She said that another lady there told her. But, I don't know her name.

I'm assuming this is the china cabinet because of the keyhole. 

Going up the steep back stairs.

Huge back landing.

This side-saddle is one of the many artifacts that you can "adopt."

The Adopt an Artifact Program

Each item is a Davis family original artifact and has been, or was, kept in the main house for decades. Since the house does not have humidity control, the artifacts deteriorate more quickly and need your support.

As an Elite Partner of the Historic Sam Davis Home & Plantation collections, you can take pride in your role of preserving an “adopted” artifact. The funds donated to the Adopt an Artifact Program will support their preservation, storage, and management.

  • $56 Bronze

Be a part of history by preserving treasures of the past for patrons of the future.
