INSPIRED BY THE BRITISH EMPIRE: Colonial-inspired house and interior design

Oaklands Mansion, Murfreesboro, Tennessee, is known for its unique Italianate design. The plantation was caught in the middle of the Civil War & officers from both the Confederate & Union armies stayed in the mansion. The most notable visitor to the home was Confederate President Jefferson Davis, who stayed at Oaklands in 1862. The last residential owner of Oaklands, Rebecca Jetton, moved out of the house in the 1950s when she was no longer able to maintain it.
