The History of Belle Meade Mansion

The History of Belle Meade Mansion is not only the title of this post – it’s a title of a book.  And I wish somebody had a copy of it & could share.

The few “snippets” I saw said Sarah LaForce Harding was a daughter of Sarah & Rene LaForce of Manakin Town VA.  It says Dr. LaForce was a physician.  Now I guess we know he was a people doctor rather then a vet.

Our extremely great auntie Sarah married William Harding & at least 2 of their kids went off to TN.  Giles bought the land but I believe it was his son John who built the mansion.  Of course they still exist: http://www.bellemeadeplantation.com so if you’re ever in TN I
hope you stop by & help keep them going. Smiley
