This home is on the Harpeth River Road between Franklin and Nashville, Tennessee in Williamson County. The residence is located on about 1000 acres of farm land with a formal garden over looking the Harpeth River. I stayed here often while in law school in Lebanon and playing in the Nashville Symphony Orchestra. In later years I entertained friends while Sophia was living and we attended the Steeple Chase in the Park on Old Hickory Boulevard near the residence and the Annual Ball at the Bell Meade Country Club. I maintained two boxes at the Steeple Chase for a number of years for use by Kentucky guests. The Masters of the Hunt of the Iroquois Hunt Club in Lexington, Kentucky and others were guests of mine at a Steeple Chase. We had Sunday brunch in this house after a Steeple Chase and Ball. We always drank mint juleps out of silver fox head cups. Sophia had a special recipe for the juleps. While National President of the Sons of the Revolution I spoke to the Daughters of the Revolution in this house. Some of the ladies at the meeting were active in the preservation of my Buchanan ancestral properties near Stone River east of Nashville.
