Davies Manor Plantation

The mission of the Davies Manor Association, Inc. is to preserve and enhance Davies Manor Plantation as a portrayal of early Shelby County farm life for the education and enjoyment of visitors.

This historic property, located in Bartlett, includes the oldest log home in Shelby County open to the public, thirty-two acres of plantation land, and numerous outbuildings. These outbuildings range from a tenant cabin to a commissary to a gristmill to an outhouse. Additionally, the property contains several gardens, including a kitchen garden and a medicinal herb garden. In the future, visitors will also be able to enjoy an arboretum and nature trails. Our current interpretive program primarily consists of docent-led tours of the log home and a self-guided walking tour of the grounds and outbuildings.
