Property Description

Cedar Lane Farm is a true legacy property that has had only 3 owners since its establishment in 1842. The centerpiece of Cedar Lane Farm is the historic Dr. Isham G. Bailey House which was constructed from 1842-1855 and served as a hospital during the Civil War. Steps away from the expansive porch are a restored log cabin guest house and original horse barn. A modern caretaker's home rounds out the accommodations, all of which have views of the pond and rolling pastures beyond. The balance of the property is a 601-acre mature mixed hardwood forest with year-round Clear Creek running through it. The 790 +/- estate spans both Tennessee and Mississippi and offers significant hunting opportunities with combined seasons on one property.
