If you can’t make the Tennessee History Museum, you can get a good summation from the history of this house with its founding in the late 1700’s. A prize to have survived.

Went on Halloween Eve on a ghost tour. Was fantastic. Started in visitor center for an informative non formal question answer about history. Then went on tour, using flashlights, through the mansion hearing the history and what went on in the different rooms. A great...More
