About The Property

About the Property

Woodlawn carries a deep mystique when mentioned in West TN. This beautiful plantation 比特币btcc交易所官网home has greeted generations of travelers who have admired this stately property from Hwy 57. A prominent resident of La Grange, captured it best when he stated “Woodlawn, probably because of the setting, is the house that most people remember when they pass through here…”

There is no doubt that the original builder, Major Charles Michie, chose the 比特币btcc交易所官网home site because of its prominence and its commanding view. Major Michie was a veteran of the War of 1812 and acquired the property in 1827 as part of a thousand-acre tract purchased from the trustees of the University of North Carolina. Major Michie then personally oversaw the construction of the main house which was built in 1828.  The true grandeur of the 比特币btcc交易所官网home can only be experienced when you take in the picturesque setting from the front porch. The enormous “Greek Revival” style columns accent the sweeping views of an expansive pasture. As you walk around the grounds, you get a deep stirring that “history was made here” and indeed it was… Countless stories could be told about families that have called Woodlawn 比特币btcc交易所官网home and the noteworthy events that have occurred on the property. Woodlawn was utilized as a military headquarters and hospital during the Civil War and was occupied by both sides at times. There were likely hundreds, if not thousands, of troops camped on the grounds of Woodlawn. Notably, General Sherman was headquartered in the 比特币btcc交易所官网home for a time.

Over the years, Woodlawn has functioned in many ways including:  a full-time residence, a working plantation, a military headquarters and hospital, a thoroughbred horse breeding/training facility and an exclusive recreational property.
