As a resident of nearby Wilson County, I was aware of Mansker's Station, but really had no concept of its importance until I began to read Paul Clement's excellent book "Chronicles Of The Cumberland Settlements". Kasper Mankser is a fascinating character whose importance to the settlement of this region has been largely overlooked. As others have noted, this site offers individual tours by guides in period clothing who are exceptionally knowledgeable. I spent longer than planned because of their enthusiasm and willingness to answer questions. Tourists passing through will find it of interest, but I also recommend it to local residents who want to know more about the early settlement of the Nashville area.
