East Ivy Mansion

Located just across the Cumberland River from downtown Nashville, and a mainstay of the historic Edgefield district, Easy Ivy Mansion is a serene oasis and a perfect setting for both weddings and corporate events. Built in 1867 by AG Stanford, the mansion has been home to various owners throughout the years, including, its first homeowner – Tennessee native Senator Henry Cooper.

East Ivy Mansion has stood the test of time through several natural and man-made disasters, and it was one of the very few properties to survive the Great Nashville Fire of 1916, a tragedy that destroyed most of the Italianate and Queen Anne style homes in the area. In 1933, tragedy struck again when a tornado devastated most of Nashville, and once again demolishing hundreds of historic homes. The East Ivy Mansion prevailed, and it continues to be one of the few original historic properties in Nashville today.
