Homestead Manor, a farm-to-table restaurant in Thompson’s Station, announced it would officially close its doors this weekend. Sunday, Feb. 24 is the restaurant’s last day in business.
“Though it was out of our realm of expertise, we fell in love with the Homestead Manor property five years ago and were delighted at the opportunity to beautify and renew it,” Andy Marshall, CEO of A. Marshall Hospitality, said in a release.
“With the recent announcement of Puckett’s inclusion in the Nashville airport expansion and other plans for growth in the near future, we now feel that Homestead deserves more attention than we are able to dedicate to it.”
Built in 1819 and steeped in Civil War History, Homestead Manor sits on 50 acres of land and is protected by a permanent conservation easement through The Land Trust for Tennessee. The antebellum home on the property has served as a general store, a post office, a hospital and several families’ private residence.
