Description

Join Historic Nashville for a members-only tour of Croft House & Grassmere Historic Farm on Saturday, November 18, 2017 at 10:00 AM

Please plan to join us for an exclusive in-depth program and tour of the Croft House and Grasmere Historic Farm at the Nashville Zoo. Have you ever wondered why there is an old house located in the middle of the Nashville Zoo? Maybe the question should be, why is there a zoo around an old house? The Croft House at the Nashville Zoo has many stories to tell. It is one of the oldest houses in Davidson County open to the public and was owned by one family through five generations. Who were the last owners? What was their connection to Cuba? How does Cuba connect to the Nashville Zoo? We will explain all of these interesting facts.

In addition, insight will be provided about the cemetery relocation on this site that occurred in 2014 and what we have learned.

Meet at the main zoo entry plaza for an escort to the Historic Farm. We will then escort everyone back to the entrance after the tour. Parking is free for HNI members attending the house tour.

After the tour, all are welcome to visit the zoo, which will then require regular paid admission and the zoo parking fee at that time.
