“Very interesting, but lots of steps”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

Guide was nice, but a little unorganized in her presentation. The homestead house was closed, which was a shame. The tower was a steep climb, but the view was beautiful.

“Great place to learn some Cumberland County area history”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

If you want to learn more about the Crossville and Cumberland County area, check this place out. The museum is located in 4 rooms connected to an old water tower. One room is the office/gift shop. Another room holds framed photographs of the area, another room holds various artifacts and the final room has seating in front of a TV set where you will watch a short video about the history of the area and the "New Deal". This room also has artifacts and many documents. If you want to learn more about some of the stone covered homes in the Homestead area of Cumberland County and learn more about the Cumberland County State Park and the Dam there - check this place out.

“Very Interesting Facts about the Depression and Homesteading”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

The tour guide was great and had amazing backgound details to share. The video was educational and even kept the boys attention (age 9 & 10) Only problem was the time of year--BEES were abundant and seemed to like the tower. It was hard to get good photos up in the tower--but, if you open a window you are probably going to get stung.

“Glad we happened to be here on Apple Fest weekend.”
Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

Great food, entertainment, and crafts at the Festival. Luckily one of the hosts , Miss Betty, gave us lots of extra information which we would not have learned from just the exhibit. The Homestead House was not open during the Festival but she invited us to visit there the following Tuesday..which we did. The whole area is a national treasure!!!
