This historic site, located in Bartlett, includes the oldest home in Shelby County open to the public, thirty-two acres of surrounding land, and numerous outbuildings. These outbuildings include a former sharecropper’s cabin, a restored commissary, and two nineteenth century frontier-style cabins relocated to Davies Manor in 2006. Additionally, the property contains several gardens, and an arboretum walking trail. Our current interpretive program consists of docent-led tours of the log home, a permanent exhibit on the history of slavery and sharecropping at Davies Plantation, and a self-guided walking tour of the grounds and outbuildings.
