ABOUT RIVERWOOD MANSION

Riverwood Mansion is one of Nashville’s historical treasures. The Metropolitan Historical Commission has identified it as one of Nashville’s most significant historic structures. Built in the late 1790s among its original 2,500 acres, Riverwood is one of Nashville’s oldest homes, and at 9,200 square feet, it is one of the largest. Known for its lavish parties, with famous guests including presidents Jackson, Polk, Pierce, Johnson, Cleveland, Roosevelt, and Taft, we continue the tradition of making unforgettable memories. Alexander Porter and his family are responsible for the original buildings that make up Riverwood Mansion today, originally called Tammany Woods after his family home in Ireland.In 1859 the house was sold to William Frierson Cooper of the influential Cooper family of Columbia, Tennessee. Eventually becoming Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Tennessee, Mr. Cooper renamed the mansion Riverwood because of its proximity to the Cumberland River and its forests. It remained in the Cooper family for decades, switching hands from William to his brother Duncan Brown Cooper, then to Duncan’s daughter Sarah Polk Burch. Eventually marrying Lucius Burch, a surgeon and dean at Vanderbilt University Medical School, Sarah lived in the mansion until her death in 1975 at age 98.Riverwood was sold in 1978 to Dr. James M. High, a physician to Mrs. Burch. The current owners, Joe and Jackie Glynn, bought Riverwood in 1994 to restore the once-magnificent home and share it with visitors, like you, for years to come.REGISTRATIONNo registration required for this event. It’s open to members and non-members, families, singles, couples, new Nashville residents and visiting guests!
