Crescent Bend is a historic home that has gone through many changes, the last of which was an attempt to return the house to its original look. That attempt was pretty successful, and the look is augmented by the fantastic Toms Collection of antique furniture and decorative arts. It is well worth a visit. Unfortunately, the home's Web site does not go into any detail about the renovations the home is now undergoing. Those improvements have necessitated the closing of the second floor, the floor which we were told contains an impressive Georgian silver collection. So we missed that. The house was also having a wedding that day, and the place closes for weddings. That is also not posted on the Web site. However, a very kind and charming docent let us in to see the first floor and gardens at no charge. Those gardens are something to see, terraced from the home to the Tennessee River below. Don't miss the famous Massachusetts chair in the front parlor and the exquisite wallpaper in the dining room. Photos don't give a real impression.
