A significant piece of Brentwood, Tennessee's history has gotten a million-dollar facelift. Thanks to the city's efforts to restore this gorgeous property, it will be made available for residents to enjoy in the future.
In 1961 Mr. and Mrs. Reece Smith purchased the home and lovingly restored it. Over the years they hosted many guests and events on the property. When they passed away, two of their sons came to the city of Brentwood and asked them to buy the property to preserve its history. In December of 2010, the city purchased the 320 acres that includes the home, and they recently purchased 80 more acres to finish out their plans.
According to Brentwood-tn.org, "The park, to be known as the Marcella Vivrette Smith Park, will be [the] largest in Brentwood as well as the City's largest ever land purchase."
According to The Tennessean, the Brentwood Historic Commission will be hosting an invitation-only "Coming Out Ball" on August 28, 2014. The money raised at this event will go toward finishing out the furnishings for Ravenswood.
