Located in the 12th South neighborhood, Sunnyside Mansion is the home of the Metropolitan Nashville Historical Commission and the centerpiece of Sevier Park. The mansion has been restored by the city, but the rear ell, which contains a nearly 200-year-old log cabin and several outbuildings, has not been restored and is in a state of extreme disrepair and deterioration. Metro Parks and Recreation, which is responsible for the buildings, has a master plan that – if funded – would include renovation for the outbuildings.
