White Plains Cookeville, TN
Head back to the middle part of the twentieth century at the White Plains plantation and house. Located just outside the City of Cookeville, White Plains is on fifteen acres of space. It was built in 1848 for the family of a Revolutionary War veteran.
See the many buildings on this site that operated as its own small town. Look for the school building, blacksmith station, post office and general store. Many old artifacts from when the plantation was operational can be found around the site. Look for the guest houses around the area. Three separate American presidents had spent time at these houses.
Go around the grounds to see the slave quarters, log cabins and smokehouse. See the old cotton farm spots that Union forces had burned during the Civil War. The walkways along the entire plantation follow the same paths that were used when the entire space was first settled.
