The H. G. W. Mayberry House, also known as Beechwood Hall, is a historic antebellum plantation house built in 1856 in Franklin, Tennessee.[1]

Plantation house[edit]

Beechwood Hall was the manor house of one of the three largest plantations in Williamson, prior to the American Civil War. It had more than 1,000 acres (400 ha) in area, and had many slaves laboring on it. The mansion's original owners were Sophronia Hunter Mayberry and Henry George Washington Mayberry

It includes Greek Revival and Italianate style architectural elements.[1]

The other two contenders for Williamson County's largest plantation are those of the Samuel F. Glass House plantation, and the "Ravenswood" plantation (James H. Wilson House), both also NRHP-listed.[2]
