Nashville City Sights: James K. Polk Home

While my parents visited last weekend, we stopped by the James K. Polk home on our way to visit family in the area. I honestly barely remembered anything about the 11th president from history class, but we enjoyed a quick guided tour of his parents’ house, kitchen, and gardens. It was a fun stop in downtown Columbia, and since we happened to go on Presidents’ Day weekend, the price was half off…. bonus!

Inside the main house was a museum room, gift shop, and a short video.

The guided tour through the Polks’ home was interesting, especially with all the  original furniture and portraits.

The outside kitchen also led to the gardens.

I loved the courtyard and gardens best, even if the fountain was frozen and this time of year probably isn’t the greenest.

To wrap up our Valentine’s Day, we got to see some of my mom’s side of the family who have a farm nearby, then a double date for dinner at Puckett’s Boat House.
