Renaissance Farm, located in Bulls Gap, Tennessee has earned its name in many ways. After visiting the Tennessee Valley in 2003, the Blackstone Family became enamored with this rural area, its breathtaking views, untouched in many ways by time, and made the bold decision to move family and farm from New England. The daunting task of relocating with three children, horses, cats, dogs, etc. was the easy part.
In 2004, the 140 acre historic farm was purchased which was in desperate need of a renaissance of it's own. The colossal renovation began on the 1904 farm house, barn, and out buildings.
David Blackstone, owner of Blackstone Construction is no stranger to renovations, and construction projects, with more than 25 years in business in New England. David brainstormed and oversaw the massive renovation.
