Great history in this reconstructed old village. Small enough so most anymore can easily walk the whole village in a half day or so.

Interesting but kind of boring at the same time. The tractors make an interesting display. Just a random collection of old buildings with little historical connection.

Fun little area in Murfreesboro. A great way to kill an hour and see how people lived long ago. We went on a Friday at 4 and at 5 food trucks and some vendors were out selling their wares.

Very neat place that you are not likely to find unless you search it out. What Greenfield Village is to Dearborn, Michigan, Cannonsburgh Village is to Murfreesboro. Cannonsburgh Village contains a collections of buildings relocated or recreated at this site to give a glimpse into Tennessee life in days gone by. Takr your time and see it all. It contains a shed with with a tremendous collection of farm tractors and a very nice museum located in what was once a cotton warehouse. The Village is free to visit. We were told that during normal times they would have people there dressed in period clothing, but covid had made that difficult. Buildings have placards with information telling about them and there is a brochure that guides you through the Village.

Had a little bit of time to kill so decided to explore Cannonsburgh. It's a free entry site with a collection of buildings that showcase some of TN history. The collection of antique tractors was particularly cool.

This place is a great little hidden gem. Really well kept. It’s got a small gift shop at the entrance. The attendants inside were courteous and attentive. You take a stroll through the little village with several buildings, train caboose, humongous cedar bucket and a antique tractor display. We loved this place. Spent about 1-2 hours here.

Do you ever have actors? When I was small, there were people that acted there. They would make soap, horse shoes, someone would be cooking in the kitchen, they would have a garden, and much more.
Yesterday when I visit, it was nice but I was missing all the actors that made it look like the old days.
