Closed but enough to see on my own. Well maintained and signs that tell the history of the buildings. Great place for photographers. Has a area to the left with antique tractors and a old looking gas station. Well worth my 10 minute drive!!

There are a lot of historical items from the area and it's free to see. You get a pamphlet with all of the buildings on it but not a map of which buildings are where. Depending on how you view everything a couple can be passed by easily. One of the buildings was set up like a museum with a... More

I've lived in Murfreesboro most of my life and I didn't even know this place existed. At first I thought it was odd that it was in the middle of town with modern buildings surrounding it, but as soon as I entered the village all my reservations disappeared. I'm the type of person who finds old-fashioned style homes/churches/schools to be... More

I live in Murfreesboro and can remember when this village was put together during the 1976 Bicentennial Celebration. Back then I thought it was cool. I still think so today. If you go on a quiet day, you can take your time and go around the buildings and all that were placed here to resemble an old time village. I... More

You had a toll bridge, gristmill, church all of that. I was a little disappointed that your couldn't enter into most of the buildings and... More

We stopped here on our trip to Florida. As a late night rest stop we headed here to see from internet searching the World's Largest Cedar Bucket. It was just before dark when we arrived. The buildings were closed but we were still able to go around this small village and look around. We finally came to the bucket which... More

These buildings have moved here from other spots around the state. Very bare bones display. The brochure looked better than the actual village. Go if you have time, if not, I would skip it.

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!
