Isaac Franklin Plantation, also known as Fairvue, is an antebellum plantation house in Gallatin, Tennessee.

Fairvue Plantation was built in 1832 by Isaac Franklin (1789-1846). Franklin retired to be a planter after a successful career as a partner in the largest slave-trading firm in the South prior to the Civil War.

Fairvue was named a National Historic Landmark in 1977. In 2005, its historic landmark status was withdrawn due to development that had damaged its historic integrity.[2]
