Lovely area where you can remember life as it used to be - before smart phones and fax machines! We almost gave up because our gps did not take us right there, but it was worth it to persevere.

What a great place to walk around and see 100 years of Tennessee life during the 1930's to the 1930's. You can self guide or pay a small fee to a guided tour. A great place to stop and hang out awhile. K.Seacrist

Beautiful village that allows you to step back in time. Original buildings are there to tour. Great for weddings or a family reunion. The green way trail ends there. The trail is 11 miles long on pavement so you can walk or ride your bike. It takes you along the Stones River. Very peaceful!
