The Hartwell B. Hyde House, also known as Solitude, is a property in Triune, Tennessee that was listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) in 1988. Hartwell Hyde was an early settler of the Triune area. He and William Jordan arrived in 1810; Jordan's log home is the location of the Newton Jordan House, also NRHP-listed. The Hyde House was an early plantation homes and had a flour mill and a cotton gin on the property. The Hyde plantation, with 900 acres, when owned by Mrs. E.B. Hyde, was one of a number of "productive and prosperous" antebellum plantations in the county.2929

HARTWELL HYDE (1759-1833) and MARY REVIS (1758-1828) came from Halifax, North Carolina to Tennessee with their eleven children in 1802. Hartwell Hyde settled on a thousand acres he had purchased in 1801 from William Gilmore, it having been part of a Revolutionary grant to Lt. Thomas Pasteur. Here, just east of Triune, Mr. Hyde established a plantation community complete within itself. The Hydes built a sturdy log house and lived simply but abundantly, never replacing the pioneer dwelling with a more pretentious brick as some of their neighbors did. (still standing) They were members of the Wilson Creek Baptist Church. Their daughter Letisha (Leticia) their oldest child was born in 1778, was grown when her parents came to Williamson County from North Carolina. Before 1805, William Spann had come from Roanoke, Virginia, and soon after his arrival here they were married (Letisha Revis). They settled on a large tract of land three miles east of Triune, built a log home and readed a large family of children. As the sons married, each built a log home near a good spring on about seventy acres of land either given to him or willed to him by the father. As the property lay in one piece with the eight or more homes scattered over it, the little settlement became knows as "Spanntown". Their houses all followed the same pattern, a large, two-story, log room with detached kitchen.2928
