Good Historic Place to See

Cannonsburgh Village is a very authentic site. Good family place to stop. They have a working blacksmith, several historic buildings to visit and an art gallery.

Cannonsburgh Village played host to the Backyard BBQ Fest and the competitive turn out was awesome. It was a great family environment and I took time out to talk to each team hoping to learn some secrets for great tasting meats hot off the grill. Not one person held back from giving me ideas to try for my next BBQ.... More

This place has a little bit of everything relate to everyday life in the old days. Here are a few of the things there: a general store, grist mill, school, church, museum, gas station and a huge display of old farm equipment.

My husband and I stopped here and spent about half an hour walking around and looking at the village. It is a collection of original buildings from all of the state brought together to recreate what life was like in the area in the 1800s. It's a pretty place to take a walk and get a little history lesson at... More

Cannonsburgh is the former name of Murfreesboro from what I remember of our visit here. The replicated buildings offer a look back at what life was like at the time. There is an annual festival called "Uncle Dave Macon Day" in July in the village and the ajacent field next to the it. The festival features blue grass and country... More

These buildings are not original to the site. They have been moved to the "Village." That not considered, it is a pleasant and educational experience. There is even an old outhouse that my grandchildren liked. Be careful and do not leave anything exposed in the car when you park. This site is near an undesireable neighboorhood.

I like this place. Check for the dates that costumed "period" guides are there. If at all possible, go during Uncle Dave Mason Days. They have crafts, folk dancing and fun stuff. Family friendly and the chapel is lovely.

I can see the educational value of this park, however I was able to walk thru quickly being that it was not staffed when I visited. None of the buildings were opened but it was still cool. Probably would've enjoyed more if I could've browsed more. Children will probably love this place.

An amazing place to visit, walk, learn, and see history set among God's beautiful landscape. The staff at Cannonsburg Village are wonderful and keep the site so clean.
