Welcome to the Farm...
The beauty of rolling hills and a winding country road along
stone fences lead to an antebellum gem. Leave your worries
behind and follow your heart to a very special place in the
country located 11 miles east of Lebanon, Tennessee. From
the moment you walk onto the impressive veranda, you will feel
the gracious southern hospitality. Whether your visit is for a
restful Bed & Breakfast stay or a group of friends experiencing
a luncheon get-together and shopping or craft event, a memory
is being made in this tranquil setting. Hear the roosters
crowing or
watch the guineas run for bugs, you will be amused
and a smile will come across your face. Come experience pure
joy in the country life at Watermelon Moon Farm!
William Washington Seay Home
Listed on the National Historic Register
The historic homestead built between 1835-1845
offers the ambiance of an earlier time. Remarkable
stone masonry are displayed in the gigantic
chimneys, porch steps and foundation. Original
faux-grain painting is also evident on much of the
upstairs windows and doors. This too displays
artistic craftsmanship of a bygone era. This grand
house was built as an exact replica of a Louisiana
plantation home visited and admired by Seay on
visits to New Orleans. Frequent trips were made
to that area by riverboat to sell the tobacco grown
on the plantation. Artifacts found under the home's
Summer Kitchen possibly reflect those visits to
that area - whale rib-bone and harpoon.
