Rippavilla Corn Maze
The Williamson County Parks and Recreation’s Senior division prepares to tour our local landmarks in nearby Thompson’s Station and Spring Hill, TN on Thursday, October 18th.
First, a comfortable motor coach transports participants to the delectable Thompson Station Grill where an ample lunch of roasted chicken, home-style meatloaf, fried catfish or vegetarian penne pasta with delicious side dishes awaits. After lunch, the group will depart for Spring Hill and a guided tour of the majestic Rippavilla Plantation, built in 1860. Once the Civil War headquarters of both Union and Confederate generals, the Greek Revival-style plantation is steeped in Civil War history as a portion of the Battle of Spring Hill was fought on the grounds. Present day caretakers of the mansion and land have turned some of the property into an 8-acre corn maze called “Tour Tennessee” providing maze walkers with a fascinating education on Tennessee history, geography and pop culture. Bring your walking shoes, an appetite and don’t miss this trip!
Cost is $32.00 per person and is all-inclusive. Check-in time the day of the trip begins at 10:30 a.m. with an estimated return time of 3:30 p.m. Transportation is provided by motor coach and will leave from the Franklin Recreation Complex located at 1120 Hillsboro Rd., Franklin.
