The Harding-Jackson family began raising thoroughbreds here (six miles west of Nashville) in the early 1800s. Several Kentucky Derby winners have been descendants of Belle Meade's studly sire, Bonnie Scotland, who died in 1880. Yes, Bonnie can be a boy's name! The 1853 mansion is open to visitors, as are various interesting outbuildings, including a model slave cabin, and wine tasting is available on site, too.
