Shelby Hall, Fatherland, Boscobel
I am researching the houses that were built by John Shelby in East Nashville. Reportedly there were three, Shelby Hall [later renamed Fatherland], Boscobel and a new house built about 1855 called Fatherland. There is a lot of misinformation in published reports. I am putting together deeds, maps, wills, old news accounts, anything I can find that might shed light on the homes. Stay tuned....
