The History

Homestead Manor was built by Mr. and Mrs. Francis Giddens, who started construction in 1799 on the home that would bear witness to the Civil War Battle of Thompson’s Station on March 5, 1863. The property was a ground-zero site for 6,000 Civil War soldiers that day. Alice Thompson and other women in the community hid in the home’s basement as Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest led his cavalry across the property toward Union lines. Forrest’s famous horse, Roderick, was shot from beneath him during the battle and died not far from the home.

A school, a post office, a general store, and now a church have all called it their home over the 200 plus year history of the property.
