We have passed by so many times on our Tennessee travels. This time, we decided to stop and take a driving break. The museum was not bad if you enjoy local history and are a train enthusiast. I can remember the television show "Casey Jones" from the 1950's which was loosely based on the real-life Casey Jones. The country restaurant... More

I spent much longer here than anticipated and it turned out to be disappointing. I arrived at 1 pm and had to wait half an hour for a table for lunch because a tour group had reservations--for 8 bus loads of people. While I waited in line with about a dozen other people, bus after bus arrived with people bypassing... More

Spend an hour. It doesn't cost much. Home was much larger than anticipated for the era it represented.

I was taken here on my travel through this region to see the little old town and train village. The old store fronts were nice to see and there were some trains on display on the property. A train hotel, the Casey Jones museum, restaurant, home, church and an old country store restaurant. I went into the lobby of the... More

I have stopped here for years as I travel down I-40 between Memphis and Nashville. I think the cost of $15 (w/o a beverage) is a bit pricy, however, the food did not disappoint. Classic Southern/Soul food. Yum!

I had been to Casey Jones Village many years ago and loved it. I had actually kept a postcard from the store, always planning to go back again someday. My husband and I visited the store while staying in the Jackson area. I had been telling him how amazing it was with "stuff" from floor to ceiling and rows and... More

Really, if you don't have to go to the bathroom, find another place to visit and spend your money. This place is just not worth the money
