The plantation began its days as a single log cabin with 101 hectares of land. Native tribes would use the woodland to hunt wild game. A trail developed which was used as a trade route by the tribes, and later, European settlers. By the time William Giles Harding took on the management of Belle Meade in 1839, he was active in local jockey clubs and horse racing. By 1860, Belle Meade comprised over 1,400 hectares and had over 130 slaves working the land and training the horses. During 1867 and 1868, Harding had won more races with his horses than any man in the United States at that time. Today, visitors can explore the controversial and fascinating history of the plantation, stroll around the deer park and enjoy shopping, dining and wine tasting.
