We all had a good time here from the train museum to the putt putt golf and the amazing candy shop and ice cream parlor. Always a neat visit. Also loved the new church that is on site.

Stoping at the Village on your way through Jackson,TN. is well worth your time. See Casey Jones Steam Engine and visit his home. After you sight see you can go into the Casey Jones restaurant and the ice cream parlor which is from the early 1900 after looking around sit down and have some of the best Southern cooking you...

All a bit strange. The Home isn’t in the actual location having been moved ‘en masse’ a number of years ago. The canteen was popular , much more than the house or museum which was sparse in terms of the public. I made detour which in hindsight was probably not worth.

We found this a bit over rated...it was very busy, the cafe and restaurant had 45 mins waiting time,with nowhere to wait other than wait in a line.

Came across this great tribute to the real Casey Jones while touring the American South. I previously did not know Casey Jones was a real person. This is a great tribute to a brave man and gives a real insight into his life and times. We spent a few hours there and really enjoyed the visit. There is even a... More

We had looked forward to stopping again at the Casey Jones Village after a trip 2 years ago. This trip, the breakfast buffet featured steaming hot breakfast steam tables, but the food was cold by the time we got to our table. The shopping selections in the gift shop were not as interesting as they were 2 years ago. The... More

There's little here to see and nothing to do (unless you count the little train tables, or the quarter operated child's train inside the store)... The only part of the train we got to actually see was the exterior and the little bit of the locomotive. Thankfully our child is only 3, so she enjoyed it...

We only had time to eat the evening meal at the Country Store. Loved the little store and listening to live musician. The next morning we had the huge breakfast buffet and had to rush off on our way home. Hope to explore it more in the future.

Putt putt golf greens in poor condition. Most staff encountered did not seem eager to serve. Country store over priced. Tourist Trap.
