Isaac Franklin Plantation, also known as Fairvue, is an antebellum plantation house in Gallatin, Tennessee.
Fairvue Plantation was built in 1832 by Isaac Franklin (1789–1846). Franklin retired to be a planter after a career as a partner in the largest slave-trading firm in the South prior to the Civil War. After his death, it was inherited by his widow, Adelicia Acklen.
Fairvue was named a National Historic Landmark in 1977. In 2005, its historic landmark status was withdrawn due to development that had damaged its historic integrity.(read more...)
