Took the kids here to tour the village. Admission is free, it was a VERY hot day so we did it a little faster than we would have otherwise. I do wish they had volunteers "working" and describing things as they do in most villages like this, but that was my only disappointment. Absolutely worth the trip!

Beautiful grounds, interesting activities, friendly staff. I enjoy attending organized activities at Cannonsburgh, as well as spending time with my grandchildren walking the grounds, reading the signs on each building, playing in the creek, and looking at the tractors. An interesting, educational, and enjoyable place to hang out. Check it out for yourself!

I had thought this was an actual village but it was not at all. It was replica of different business and homes from the past. Some of the replicas the furnishing didn't match the time period. The small museum was a collection of antiques clustered together with no markers to describe the objects. The staff was rude in the gift... More

This is a place filled with local history. They have workshops and a complete village of the buildings as they were in the day. A beautiful little chapel. You can even reserve it for getting married. The river runs directly by here and it is a great place to go and enjoy the scenery and the village. In the summer... More

If you are in Murfreesboro and what to see how things were back then. This is the place to visit they have a blacksmith shop and a old grist mill. And they also have Uncle Dave Macon Days every year. Its a bluegrass festival very great.

Wasn't open on a Monday in winter so could be better when it is. It's a fake village on the site of an old factory demolished in 1990. Buildings have been brought from all over the state. Interesting way to save them but the whole thing seemed a little too false without more information or guides being available to ask... More

A fine collection of log houses, log buildings and other old time structures. Usually, you'll have the place to yourself unless there is a festival on. Definitely worth a stop. Be aware of the opening times though. During opening times, the buildings are open so you can look inside the museum, old school house, doctors office, mill, etc. When closed... More
