The Land Trust for Tennessee’s Glen Leven Farm is a working 65-acre farm just four miles from the center of downtown Nashville. The historic landscape was given to The Land Trust by Susan M. West, a descendant of Nashville settler Thomas Thompson who came to Nashville with James Robertson in the late 1780s.
Ms. West’s will stipulates that the land be left as open space, never to be developed or subdivided. The Land Trust conserves the property as a place that illuminates all aspects of our work – it is a historic, urban, working farm used as a recreational and educational resource for the community.
Glen Leven Farm is not regularly open to the public, but we host scheduled workshops, field trips, open days, group tours, volunteer days, pasture walks, arboretum walks, cultural events and lectures. Click here more information.
