This living museum is a tribute to the employees and volunteers that bring it to life. Located in the town of Goodlettsville, North of Nashville, it's a bit out of the way, but well worth the drive. Beginning at the reception desk/museum, you pay a nominal entrance fee and, when you're ready, are directed out of the building, over a bridge, and to the warm welcome of your first guide, normally working in the garden where they explain the growing crops and how they would have been cultivated in frontier days. Then we were passed off to the guide inside the fortified station who explained the construction and uses of all the buildings and facilities. Finally, we were escorted to a two story brick house constructed in 1787 which had been restored and furnished with period pieces. The tour was extremely interesting and informative. Having the guides in period dress added to the enjoyment.
