A Valentine’s Day Wedding Legacy - Cheekwood
x icon Close

Cheekwood will celebrate the 80th wedding anniversary of Huldah Cheek and Walter Sharp with an installation of Huldah’s wedding gown in the drawing room of the mansion where they married on February 14, 1942. The legacy of Huldah and Walter is that of great love and lasting generosity: In 1957, the couple offered for Cheekwood to become a public garden and fine arts center, making the estate, its extraordinary gardens and buildings, accessible to the public and establishing a new cultural destination in Nashville.
