About Trousdale Place
This home of former Tennessee Governor William Trousdale (1849-1851) was built around 1813 in the heart of Gallatin as a city house. Governor Trousdale was a veteran of the War of 1812, Creek War, Seminole War, and the Mexican-American War, for which he was nicknamed the “War Horse of Sumner County.” He served as governor of Tennessee from 1849-1851. The house contains original Trousdale furniture and a small library.
