“Nice little village”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

It is just a small old time village, not much to do there except walk around and look, but interesting if you haven't seen it before.

“This is a great Historical Village”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Very interesting, many buildings and the biggest collection of old tractors. The log cabins were furnished and the contents as interesting as the exteriors. Great potshot.

if you visit make sure you have a few hours because you will not want to rush . take time to visit every building to see the different displays from the iron bridge to the farming section . the park is very clean and easy to walk through . check the schedule and visit when the smittys are working , this is a real American history lesson so take your time when you visit .

“Hometown To-do's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

I have a soft spot for this place due to the fact my relatives helped bring the Village together. The general store there was owned and operated by my great, great uncle which was moved from the Link community in Southern Rutherford County. It is a representation of what "Pioneer" living would have been like in Middle Tennessee as all the buildings were structures moved from various parts of the county. This Village is also home to the World's Largest Cedar Bucket and Uncle Dave Macon Days, which a local blue grass festival in honor of Grand Ole Opry Star Dave Macon. It's a great place for family pictures and killing time while walking on the Greenway around the city. There is even a small church located there in which I have attended several weddings.
