The boyhood home of the great Confederate cavalry general,
Nathan Bedford Forrest, is located on land that was originally a Revolutionary War land grant. William Forrest, the general’s father, bought the house and land, moved the family from the frontier village of Chapel Hill to this location and lived here from 1830-1833. The site includes the original two-story 1820’s cedar cabin and barn plus 57 acres of woods and farmland. In 1997, the Sons of Confederate Veterans acquired the property and began the restoration and maintenance of this historic site. At this time, the home is not open on a daily basis; tours are available by calling for advance reservations. This is also the site of the annual Southern Heritage Festival held the 3rd Saturday in June.
