The Scene:

If you love places with a story like the Marshall family does, Homestead Manor’s heritage is layered with tales nearly two centuries old……

Built by Mr. and Mrs. Francis Giddens, construction first started on Homestead Manor in 1799. Now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Manor is a 4,000 square-foot plantation style home with nine historically distinctive rooms on three stories. In 1819, when it was completed, there was only one other house that stood between Homestead Manor and the town of Columbia.

On March 5, 1863, the property became a ground-zero site for 6,000 Civil War soldiers. Alice Thompson and other women from the area hid in the home’s basement (by this time owned by the Banks family) as the Confederates led their cavalry across the property toward Union lines. After the battle, many of the wounded were taken into the Manor to be treated.

In 1887, the Banks family sold the home, and it passed through several hands over the years. A member of the family bought it back in 1959, but a decade later it passed out of family ownership again. Former owner William Darby said a cannon ball found lodged in a tree in the front yard was used as a doorstop for years by the Banks family, and it became a tradition to pass the ball to subsequent owners. Today, diners can view that cannon ball at Homestead.

In spring 2013, Homestead Manor commemorated 150 years since the storied fight with its grand re-opening of the beautiful home and a battle re-enactment that drew thousands. The property was also placed under permanent conservation easement through The Land Trust of Tennessee. A. Marshall Family Foods Inc. purchased the property with plans to take it from a former tea room and event space to a multi-faceted destination that would become a jewel within the Thompson’s Station community.

The Marshall family have built their vision around the property’s character. Today, the home sits as a preserved oasis surrounded by lush green grass, mature trees and gentle hills that define the landscape. The versatile venue includes an event barn, a fresh farm-to-table restaurant concept, a farmer’s market and educational opportunities involving Homestead’s on-site orchard, greenhouse and working farm.

Design:

Situated on 50 acres of land steeped in local history, the ca. 1819 Homestead Manor property is A. Marshall Family Food Inc.’s latest multi-layer hospitality concept, offering a wealth of dining, entertainment and educational opportunities to the community. The aesthetic of the property and many of the unique architectural and historical pieces were the vision of the Marshall family and designer Kim Legget of City Farmhouse.

Flanking our Harvest restaurant, housed in the historic antebellum Manor, is The Farm at Homestead, our working organic farm that supplies the restaurant and bar with the freshest produce for seasonal dishes and concoctions. Homestead’s agricultural curators fold in an orchard, greenhouse and herb garden to provide the chefs with a wide-ranging bounty of picked naturals.

Built in the middle of Homestead’s pastoral surroundings, The Barn at Homestead lends another dimension to the property with a rustic-style structure that elevates wedding celebrations and community gatherings.

Extra Perks:
Our inclusive packages include several tieres of event amenities, including rental items, catering, staff, decor, entertainment and more. Contact our events team today for further details!

Food, Restaurants, Cafes:

Looking for a fresh farm-to-fork dining experience? Take a seat at Harvest at Homestead, our locally-sourced, globally-inspired restaurant. Centered on seasonality, Harvest has an ever-adapting roster of menus throughout the year, creating source-centric plates with many of the ingredients plucked straight from the on-site farm. Chefs bring the best of wood-fired fare to the table, utilizing our brick pizza oven and open flame grill. Guests can watch (and smell!) all the goodness in store by stopping by the open kitchen windows.

Bars & Lounges:
If you need a bright refresher, The Glass Bar at Homestead – which rests beside the Manor - slings cocktails crafted with locally distilled libations and fresh ingredients from our backyard herb garden, in addition to an extensive wine list. It is a distinctive space, dressed in reclaimed wood, brick, and copper, dedicated to crafting memorable libations – those concoctions you remember to tell your friends about. Try favorites like the Clyde's Nightcap, made with H Clark's Black & Tan, distilled less than a mile from Homestead Manor's grounds!
