Belle Meade Plantation Built in 1853 in Tennessee
The back area of the plantation by the Smokehouse where they would cure large quantities of pork & beef, they stored over 20,000 Pounds of Pork in a single year in 1826. They did a lot of entertaining to show off their wealth.

In front of Diary Cottage on the Plantation built in 1884 where they produced dairy food, mostly butter. They would produce 240 pounds of butter a week. Gotta Love Butter!
In front of the Plantation Mausoleum built in 1839 this is a Tomb Vault that houses the remains of the founding family members. On a personal note it was spooky and a had a weird energy the closer you got to the tomb, but at the same time it was really beautiful with all the over grown greenery and surrounding nature.
Green House on the Plantation, built in 1820. This was one of my favorite areas, I can totally see myself here making a orchid display or just garden.

This was the Carriage House & Horse Stables built in 1892. The Family collected many Carriages to show off their wealth and breed thoroughbred horses which is how the family made most of their money
