Now maybe someone will buy the place and actually live there. That was a beautiful homestead intended to be enjoyed by a family. Lets pray that another person doesn't buy it with the intentions of making it some type of resort or office buildings.

You are an idiot. You probably moved to Tennessee from some place up North. Moved into a subdivision that looks like crap in Thompson's Station. Your subdivision was purchased from a farmer who made money in the sale and the developer developed it into your crappy home place. So now you do not want someone else to benefit from the sale of his property so you do not have to look at another crappy subdivision like you live in... and oh by the way the stupid supporters of our mayor who live in Pecan Hills a crappy subdivision full of idiots like you that want to restrict the rights of others so you can look at cows. Your an idiot; move from Thompson's station please so our average IQ can go up and take your mutant children with you that are probably ruining our TCAP scores.

I am a direct descendant of the Buford who built the home. One of the sons moved to Western TN before the War for Southern Independence or Civil War for those from up Nawth. We Western Tn Bufords were not aware the home still stood until the 1970s when a cousin was on a Christmas tour of older homes in the area on the National Historic Registry found that one of the homes on the itinerary was Roderick Place our old ancestral home. My Dad can recall his father visiting the home when he was a child about 1880. They traveled from Western Tn a distance of about 150 miles by horse and wagon.
We Western Tn Bufords were and are too poor to purchase the property but it is hoped the house is preserved as a home and not as part of a commercial development.

I am part of the Western TN bunch, but now live in Spring Hill. I work in Thompson's Station. The house is still there, and it is not currently for sale, but rumor of development abounds. Last I heard, it would be condos and a neighborhood.

I had heard from my aunt about Roderick Place, but had never seen it until I moved nearby. Truthfully, I thought it was in Franklin. Imagine my surprise when I realized I worked five minutes from it.
