Wilson Farm may be next old farm to disappear

The Tennessean identified the farm I photographed in The old farms are disappearing.

It’s called The Wilson Farm, but it may not be around much longer. Sumner tries to save piece of is rural past.

Local historian Walter Durham said there’s little historic value in the old Comer House itself; it was built in the 1950s.

But the surrounding farmland, known locally as the Wilson Farm, includes several barns — including a unique stone barn just off Nashville Pike that may hold more historical significance than any other building on the property.

“When it was built, it was one of the early sites for breeding (Tennessee) Walking Horses,” he said.
