Lawrenceburg, TN, is a charming town rooted in history, named after former American Navy officer James Lawrence. It also serves as the birthplace of Southern gospel music. Today, the Southern town offers plenty of shopping and locally-owned restaurants, and you can call this charming city home thanks to this historic house that just hit the market. The three-bedroom, two-and-half-bathroom home has earned a spot on the National Register of Historic Places and offers 3,980 square feet of space.

Known as “The Garrett House,” the building received its name from James W. Garrett, a former Lawrenceburg mayor and public school teacher. After the building was sold to a doctor who used it as a clinic, the house was left in disrepair for nearly 70 years. In 2004, a Lawrenceburg couple saved the property from demolition and thoughtfully restored it to the awe-inspiring home it is today. From a grand spiral staircase to decorative interior bargeboard, egg-and-dart detailing, and a corner tower, it’s a stunning example of 19th century Queen Anne Victorian architecture. Take a look inside, and find out how you can call this gorgeous property home!
