About Us

Our founder David Ewing was chosen by the Nashville Scene as Nashville's "Best Historian." A ninth generation Nashville native,  David has served on the board of the Parthenon and  three of Nashville's most important historic homes: The Hermitage, Traveller's Rest, and Cheekwood. A graduate of  Vanderbilt Law School, Leadership Nashville, and a past President of Young Leaders, David frequently consults with CEO's,  Country stars, and others whose businesses intersect with Nashville history. After years of being asked by friends and colleagues to take visitors (from C-suite executives to garden club members) on insider tours of Nashville, David decided to make his passion his business. Contact us today to book a custom tour.
