Cannonsburgh is a small "village" that demonstrates how early settlers lived in the area, but includes about about a 100-year window of time ranging from "pioneer" days up to the Depression era. Self-guided tours are free. There are also many craft festivals, music events, car shows, etc. held here.

Great collection of farm tractors and equipment. Great to see things from that era. I now know I'm getting old because I recognized some things. Somewhat disappointed at the display of things, not grouped well, no one on-hand to explain anything. Self guided walking.

A beautifully preserved historical pioneer town, Cannonsburgh is connected to the Murfreesboro GreenWay and is open to view how the early settlers of Murfreesboro lived. Cannonsburgh is the location of the Uncle Dave Macon's Days festival in Murfreesboro. An out door festival of folk music and crafts. It's always hot but there's always frozen lemonade right around the corner. Also... More

This is history in it most simple form. Walk and discover the town at your own pace. Can be quiet or nosy depending on time of year you go. They offer festivals and music. Plenty of close places to dine at also

This reconstructed village is well worth the stop. The buildings and exhibits are well done and maintained. It was not crowded. We were able to walk out dog around the village. My husband enjoyed the antique tractor display. My only negative comment would be that many of the artifacts in the museum could use better descriptions. Facilities are clean and... More

I took 11 and 13 year old kids there. Super fun! The employee running the gift store was very nice and knowledgeable, the gift store items were very inexpensive (a plus when kids only have a couple bucks to spend) and the grounds were beautiful. Not only that, it's FREE! We spent about an hour to 1.5 hours walking and... More

We got there a little early but the man was nice enough to open it up for us. We walked around took photos I recommend not being early if you want to sign the registry or go to the gift shop. But we enjoyed looking at everything and I was glad to see how well kept it had been since... More

My grandchildren, as well as my mother really enjoyed seeing the old church, school, blacksmith shop, and homes. My grandsons especially loved the old tractors. The museum was really neat showing 'Ol Murfreesboro. Surprisingly, the public restrooms were very clean. It was a great day! It is open to the public, so make sure you give donations so we can...
