To protect our guests and staff from the risk of exposure to COVID-19, the President James K. Polk Home has postponed our annual "Bloodys & Biscuits" fundraiser.  Usually held on the morning of Columbia's Mule Day parade (which has been canceled this year), "Bloodys & Biscuits" will be rescheduled as a stand-alone event later this spring or summer.  As soon as the new date has been determined, it will be posted on this website. 


The James K. Polk Home and Museum is located at 301 W. 7th Street in downtown Columbia, TN.

Free parking is available in the lot across 7th Street or along High Street on the east side of the main house.
