The Cheek Family, who founded Maxwell Coffee, built this elegant mansion in the late 1920s. In the late 1950s, they donated the mansion and the surrounding 65 acres to the City of Nashville, which maintains the estate today. This Nashville treasure includes the botanical gardens, contemporary art galleries, a gift shop and the Pineapple Room restaurant. A variety of classes and workshops are available to all ages. There is also the Cheekwood's Museum of Art which house some great American and British paintings which are worth checking out. The grounds include several types of gardens and the Woodland Sculpture Trail.
I have to say that I was very disappointed when my second grade child came home from a school trip that he had taken there on Dec. 1st. He informed me that two of the second grade classes were allowed to eat lunch inside the facility and the other four were asked to eat outside. The temperature was in the upper 40's on this day. I don't believe that Cheekwood should have booked six 2nd grade classes if they could not hold that many children at one time.
I went to Cheekwood while on vacation in Nashville 2 years ago and absolutely loved it. It is such a beautiful and peaceful place. My favorite part was the nature trail with the various sculptures. There was some fascinating art work.
