Stanley Horn at Marker Dedication

Above:  Photo of Stanley Horn, taken during the dedication of the historical marker located at the corner of Granny White Pike and Battery Lane in 1964.  Dr. Horn was  a Nashville editor and businessman who authored nine books about the Civil War.  In 1956 , he published The Decisive Battle of Nashville, the small book which many consider to be the definitive work on the battle, including its detailed descriptions of the officers, the armies, the battlefield and the course of the fighting both before and during the two days of conflict on December 15 – 16,  1864, and the impact of Hood’s Tennessee campaign and the Battle of Nashville on the war.

Lealand Residence

Original photograph of Lea-Davis Residence, “Lealand.” Address: 1039 Tyne Boulevard. George W. Thompson 1889-1890. “Two red brick auxiliary buildings of the estate of the late Judge John M. Lea have been united and restored as a residence by the Rev. and Mrs. Paschall Davis. A 35-room mansion and auxiliary buildings, called Lealand, were built here in 1884, and the home was rebuilt following a fire three years later. Made of handmade brick faced with brown sandstone, Lealand had its own waterworks, gasworks and fire fighting equipment. Closed for 25 years beginning in 1912, Lealand was demolished in 1940 when the estate was subdivided. The home was built by Judge John M. Lea and his wife, the former Elizabeth Overton, daughter of Judge John Overton.” Excerpt from Nashville: A Short History and Selected Buildings, copyright 1974 by the Historic Commission of Metropolitan Nashville – Davidson County, Tennessee.
