SCOUTED: Skipwith Hall

RwmOdp_gbRIFj08Wp_kAOk4YpChinSo0X4aS3fL5DmM Skipwith Harlan Hill or Skipwith Hall is a historic home located just south of Nashville in Columbia, TN. This beautiful home was built in the 1800s for Revolutionary War hero Nathaniel Greene’s daughter Lady Cornelia Greene Skipwith and her husband Sir Peyton. The homestead was built on 1,100 acres of the original 25,000 acre land grant. In the late 1830′s Skipwith Hall was acquired by Major General Ben F. Harlan who developed a successful horse and mule breeding operation on the property. Harlan employed Maury County master builder Nathan Vaught to add six pillars and a sweeping veranda to the house making Skipwith Hall a distinctive monument to the Planter Age in Middle Tennessee. The newly renovated Skipwith Hall is now available to rent for hosting events.
