Fort Hill is an irregularly shaped redoubt, constructed between 1863-1864, on a hill overlooking Waverly, Tennessee. The outer walls of the redoubt remain intact around the entire length of the fort. The troops protecting the area consisted of the 12th and 13th U.S. Colored Troops, the 8th Iowa Cavalry, and the 1st Kansas Battery. The Butterfield House, built in 1922, is now used as the Humphreys County Museum, which stands at this site. It is full of artifacts ranging back to the Civil War, has been restored and is full many beautiful antiques as well. The view, as you step out of the beautiful double doors onto the front porch, overlooks the valley of Trace Creek. This venue can be booked for private parties.
