Travellers Rest, the plantation home of Judge John Overton and headquarters of Confederate General John Bell Hood, is one of Nashville’s most historically important houses and the most significant of those involved in the Civil War era and the Battle of Nashville.
Sunnyside or Sevier Home is located in Sevier Park on 12th Ave. South. Was located directly between the Union and Confederate lines prior to the Battle of Nashville on Dec. 15, 1864. Afterwards, it served as a hospital for wounded soldiers. Two log cabins east of the house may be the oldest structures in Metro Nashville.
