Arts & Museums
The Fessenden House that contains the museum was built after the civil war on land granted by the state of North Carolina to James Meness, Jr., a serviceman in the Revolutionary War. The home has been restored and donated to the city to house more than 100 years of history.
Visitors of this museum are encouraged to walk through exhibits of Lebanon's past and learn about its history. Visitors can also hear people from Lebanon's past tell of the old days and the way things were.
Govan's Gathering Place Coffee House is more than just a nice coffee shop on the Gallatin Square. It is the culmination of years of the dreams and hopes of the Govan family. This fabulous local coffee shop offers guests a wide variety of fresh, flavorful coffees and treats in an environment inspired by the artwork and passions of former University of Memphis art professor, Frank Govan, a deceased relative of the owners of this shop. In addition to coffee, Govan's serves as a small art gallery for Professor Govan's personal collection as well as a showplace for his glass and pottery collection. The relaxed environment, beautiful art and fantastic coffee brews make Govan's a perfect spot to relax while antiquing in Gallatin. -Lynn-nore Chittom
Just north of Nashville sits the Historic Rock Castle, the stately seven-story limestone home where Revolutionary War veteran Daniel Smith once resided. Visitors to this landmark will learn of Smith's work as a surveyor and senator in Tennessee, as well as the lives of his descendants, all of whom were pioneers in the history of the state. Guided tours are given daily. The castle can also be rented for conferences and luncheons.
