The original section of the house was built in 1818 and expanded as the family did over the years. it boasts several original features (wood floors) and some furniture and wares that was owned by the family. The house when I visited also set up for Victorian funeral for both adult and... More

I was there on a Saturday, the weather was great. They had a wedding going on the outside, which looked pretty. The grounds were lovely. The mansion was very interesting going thru the rooms. I keep watching for a ghost or two. If your in Murfreesboro, you need to see this mansion.

We got there right at 10:00 am when they opened. You first go into a gift shop area where we paid the fee. We had a wonderful tour guide who was very knowledgeable on the home and surrounding areas. We were also allowed to take pictures,which was great, loved this tour, the beautiful history.

You're here because you enjoy history and period architecture. There were no crowds during our visit so we received undivided attention from the guide. We were able to pace ourselves, ask lots of questions and encouraged to take lots of pictures. We enjoyed the relaxing pace and were fascinated by the depth of history surrounding Oaklands. Come see for yourself.... More

This is an old house. If you like old houses this is for you. Lots local history here if that is your thing. They have tours of the house on different seasons, for example you can see what a death and funeral were like in the south during Halloween and what Christmas was like during the period the house was...

A place rich in history - step back in time and learn about the history of Murfreesboro. The grounds are beautiful in the Summer and walking the grounds is free. Carve out an afternoon for a historic treat.

I always take my furbabies here to walk around and run. The grounds are beautiful. Many photo shoots happen here. Love the little round track down by the water. You must tour the mansion! Absolutely beautiful!

Though we arrived between scheduled tour times, James was willing to give a small group our own tour of this fascinating and gorgeous mansion. We learned about how it was built, added onto, looted, sold, abandoned, and finally brought back to life by a group of dedicated history enthusiasts in Murfreesboro. Thanks, James, for a wonderful trip back to the... More
