Rose Hill - Rutledge Hill area of Nashville

Rose Hill

One of the old houses on Rutledge Hill, located on the corner of Rutledge & Lea. It was originally the home of Henry Middleton Rutledge and Septima Sexta Middleton Rutledge. They were 1st cousins and children of 2 of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, Edward Rutledge and Arthur Middleton.

The original portion of the home was built in 1814 but much of it burned during the civil war. The front of the home, shown here, is a newer addition. Another owner of the house was Edmund Baxter, brother of railroad magnate Jere Baxter.

Now, the house is used by the law firm of Blackburn & McCune.
