Historic Cedarwood Photo Gallery
With a history that spans 171 years, Nashville’s earliest settlers, and the Civil War, Cedarwood is a landmark anchored in the Whites Creek Historic District that has long offered motorists along this north Nashville highway a connection with its pastoral roots, despite the development springing up around it.
Built in 1835 by James Yarbrough, this beautiful homestead, located at 3831 Whites Creek Pike, is an excellent example of a Tennessee Vernacular structure that once was center of a 330 acre farm and hub for political rallies and community activity.
After completion of the Whites Creek Turnpike in 1844, the increasingly prominent Yarbrough family shared their home as an inn for regional travelers.
Almost two centuries later, Cedarwood returns to its gracious tradition of hospitality by opening its doors as a historic event home that can be booked as a site for weddings, receptions or corporate events.
The picturesque estate exudes the country charm once taken for granted on the fringes of Davidson County, and is now a preserved parcel of the past for gatherings amidst the tranquil setting of a shady antebellum lawn, flower-laden garden terrace or country meadow.
Cedarwood’s beautifully appointed and impeccably restored historic Yarbrough House can host up to 100 guests for an elegant indoor setting, and the expansive grounds, patios and gardens create enchanting sites for outdoor events for 200 or more guests.
For those immersed in the hustle and bustle of daily life, Cedarwood offers a breath of fresh air, yet the convenience of being just eight miles from downtown Nashville just off Briley Parkway.
Cedarwood owner Karen Wright has been connected to the wedding industry since 1979 as one of Nashville’s most recognized floral designers specializing in weddings and special events.
She and her partners, Linda and Nathan Wright rent Cedarwood as a venue for events, and can also help those wanting complete event coordination with the smallest detail to carry out the legacy of Southern hospitality that originated here so long ago.
