|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This is the historic home and family cemetery of Gen. Daniel Smith and his wife, Sarah Michie, both of whom are buried here.
Located on Old Hickory Lake in Hendersonville, Rock Castle is two miles south of Gallatin Road (Highway 31E) off Indian Lake Road. It remains one of Tennessee‚s most important structures of the early Republic. Its noteworthy architectural character reflects the taste of a man of culture and education who chose to build a new life for himself and his family on the frontier.
The cemetery can be accessed via the front gate or via Island Drive which is the second right past Rock Castle entrance on Indian Lake Road
