Alright, I admit it. Technically it's not Williamson County. But....it's close enough and interesting enough to warrant a mention! Rippavilla Plantation is located in Spring Hill, TN (yes, it IS Maury County) at 5700 Main Street (US Highway 31, just across from the Saturn Plant).
Rippavilla is a fantastic piece of history to visit any time of the year. But, in the fall, there is an extra special reason to visit.......the Corn Maze! It is a fun, NON haunted corn maze. Sure, you will be given a paper map. But, if you are part of the high tech crowd, feel free to bring your GPS and coordinates will be provided for you. Cost for the corn maze is $7.00 for adults, $5.00 for kids ages 6 through 12. Get a coupon here. Rippavilla representatives are present throughout the maze to be sure rules are followed (and to help if you need it).
Thursday: 3:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m.
Friday: 3:00 p.m. - 11:00 p.m.
Saturday: 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 p.m.
Sunday: 12 Noon - 6:00 p.m.
Last admission: 45 minutes before closing.
While you are there, be sure to visit the house. Built in 1855 by Nathaniel F. Cheairs, Rippavilla has stood for over 150 years. You will learn about the history of the home, the family and the Battle of Spring Hill which took place in November 1864 during the civil war. Admission is$10.00 for adults, $8.00 for seniors, $5.00 for children 6-12 and free for children 5 and under.
