Join us every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at 2:00 pm during the month of August for our special Yellow Rose Tea in honor of the Women’s Suffrage Movement, which had its headquarters at The Hermitage Hotel, Nashville. This special experience is inclusive of a glass of champagne, a yellow rose upon departure, and a commemorative keepsake menu that is inspired by the bygone era.

The pivotal decision granting women the right to vote nationwide came down to Tennessee delivering the 36th and final state victory. During the scorching summer of 1920, The Hermitage Hotel, located across the street from the State Capitol, was the epicenter of an embattled mix of pro- and anti-suffragists, legislators and lobbyists in the weeks leading up to the ratification of the 19th amendment. With anti-ratification forces wearing red roses squaring off against yellow-rose-wearing pro-suffrage campaigners, the suffrage struggle at The Hermitage Hotel came to be known as “The War of the Roses.”
