Learn more about Historic Lairdland Farm House and Civil War Museum.
Historic Lairdland Farm House and the accompanying Civil War museum in the Brick Church community of Giles County is open for tours by appointment only and during special events like the spring House in Mourning, summer Edwardian Teas, autumn Living History and winter Victorian Christmas, where visitors will see antiques and collectables from around the world in beautifully appointed, period-decorated rooms.
The owners converted a portion of the impressive Lairdland Farm House mansion into a Civil War museum filled with artifacts, clothing, military weaponry and equipment and numerous other pieces from their private collection containing both Union and Confederate articles.
After several years of major restoration work, in May 2005 the owners were awarded a Certificate of Merit by the Tennessee Historical Commission for preservation and restoration of the historic property. Listed in the National Register of Historic Places since 1995, in 2008 Lairdland Farm House was the second site in the state designated as an official stop along the Tennessee Civil War Trail.
The grounds include a Victorian Traveller's Cottage, a 19th century smoke house, a courtyard garden and a designated small wildlife habitat.
“We feel fortunate to live in a place filled with so much history,” owners Bennita and Don Rouleau said. “We decided to open the home, grounds and museum to the public year round and to host a series of events throughout the year so people of all ages could experience history.”
