Two Rivers Mansion
Two Rivers Mansion , one of the last of the elaborate antebellum country homes built in the Nashville area and one of the earliest and best preserved of the ornate Italianate houses in Middle Tennessee, was once part of an 1100 acre plantation located on fertile, rolling land between the Stones and Cumberland rivers.
The mansion, built by David McGavock in 1859 on the eve of the Civil War for his beautiful bride, William (Willie) Elizabeth Harding but not finished until the 1870's, was inhabited by the McGavock family for three generations until 1965, when the last heir died and the property was purchased by the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County. Today the fourteen acre tract, which includes the mansion and one of Nashville 's oldest brick houses built in 1802, is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. 3130 McGavock Pike, Nashville, TN 37214-1678, (615) 885-1112
