Stone Hall was built by Dempsey Weaver Cantrell soon after the "1916 Great Fire" of Edgefield in Nashville. The home is constructed of hand-hewn pure dove limestone quarried on the Cantrell farm. Stone Hall takes its name from the sixteenth century home of the Cantrell ancestors in England. (Of course, there is a double meaning since the home is made of limestone and it overlooks the Stones River.)
Today, the 1918 Colonial Revival home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It was acquired by Metro Parks in 2007 and connects to the Stones River Greenway.
