Travel back in time to Collinsville. See the way people lived during this era. Experience life as it was on the farm, school, and church during the 1800's.

Very fun. Walking through trees to outbuildings of yesteryear. $5.00 admission. Sweet docents. Good activity for school children. Can't enter the buildings but you can see through most Windows. Worth the trip!

My husband and I decided to take a nice country drive to the beautiful Historic Collinsville, an authentic high-quality museum. It was a very relaxing drive and a pleasant experience. Not very far from Clarksville, TN. We were graciously greeted by a very knowledgeable lady who made us feel "at home" The visitors center has lots of information and a nice small gift shop. It is open May 15 to October 15 Thursday through Sun day 1p.m. to 5p.m. You can take a self-guided tour for $5 but group and school tours are also available. A picture tour map is available outlining each historic area. There are 13 such areas. #1 is the 1830s Weakley Visitor Center, #2 the wagon shed, #3 the Baggett smokehouse, #4 the corn crib, #5, the 1842 Lewis house, #6, the ball dog-trot house, #7 the Powers smokehouse, #8 the Powers washouse, #9 the loom house, #10 farm tools, #11 Wildwood church and school, #12 the tobacco patch and #13 the Vertrees tobacco barn. This is a wonderful photo op. Although we are not history buffs and did not take the tour, we had a great time walking around and taking beautiful pictures.…

The best old homestead I've ever seen and I've seen a lot researching for my log home business. Off the beaten path in the country where it should be. So peaceful I jumped a pair of spotted fawns out of bed looking at the cabins.

We saw the video on their web site but our visit was not like the video. All the buildings were locked so you could only walk past them. The main house had a sign on the steps so you could not go to the boys room. You can view the living room and kitchen from the door. The girls room was not accessible and the main bedroom was so dark you could see very little of the room. It may be better if there is some sort of event taking place but on an average day...everyone in our group was disappointed and wished we had done something else.…
