From a book published by First American National Bank
called “Homes of Tennessee” in 1956
Ashlawn, the home of Mr. and Mrs. Stirton Oman, was built at the same time as the Hermitage (1832-34) by a Mr. Christmas. It has double parlors and trim like the Hermitage, but the circular stairway rises three stories where the Hermitage only rises two. The ceilings are thirteen feet.
In 1945 Mr. and Mrs. Stirton Oman remodeled and modernized this house, keeping the original design and trim. This estate comprises seven hundred and fifty acres and is located on the Franklin Road. Its address is Route 2, Brentwood, Tennessee.
