House Museum and Farmstead

The Matt Gardner House was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1995 as a significant farmstead associated with African American heritage, agriculture, commerce, and architecture from 1870 to 1942. The farm provides for the interpretation of a variety of significant historical topics, including slavery, emancipation, Reconstruction, education, religion, architecture, and agriculture. The house is accompanied by five contributing structures, including a well house, smokehouse/store, chicken coop, outhouse, and cow barn.

The Matt Gardner Homestead is one of seven certified Century Farms in Tennessee that was established by an African American.
