Walk through the door and you are transported back to the 1700's. Very interesting and authentic with plenty to see. Actually it is a little village where over 100 people were living. Just great. Recommend.
Went here on a whim and was very surprised how much interesting history there was! It's not a long stop but you will certainly find fun facts and be glad you stopped.
This is 1786 historical site houses a small village of cabins and artifacts. It was one of the homes listed on the historical homes combo. It was interesting to see how people lived in the past.

I'm from the Northeast and have seen my share of early American houses. What made this special was the person working at the reception desk. Robert knows his info better than anyone else I've ever seen. He's funny and informative. Make sure to ask him about the ghost.
It's in the heart of Knoxville and is easy to access from the interstate. They hold special events, free to the public. Take an hour and stop in.
