“Fun Time”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

This was just a day trip because we were bored. It was a fun way to spend the day...we learned a lot about trains that we wouldn't have known otherwise.

“Great Site/ Great Story”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

We stopped for breakfast at the Casey Jones Restaurant - fantastic food and staff. I saw it rated as the "best food in Jackson" - I believe they were telling the truth.

Afterwards we were given a tour of the Railroad Museum and Providence House. The enthusiasm and knowledge of the staff really set this visit apart from other attractions. I definitely recommend stopping in at the Casey Jones Village when you are in the area.

“Interesting”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

Great place to visit. A lot of interesting facts of Casey's life. The cab of that engine had to be a nightmare to operate.

“Fun Roadside Stop”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

On a recent trip to Memphis from Nashville, we decided to stop in Jackson and visit Casey Jones Village. We paid to go through the museum which had some very cool memorabilia and history in it, but was a bit overpriced. We did enjoy going thru the house, but couldn't help to think that it could use a little better care in trying to preserve it.

We did not eat at the restaurant, but did walk through the gift shop area - filled with your typical tourist style trinkets and gifts. Our daughters enjoyed the candy area as well as getting an ice cream and fudge.

There was another area filled with miscellaneous stores, but as it was a Sunday, none were open. This was a bit of a disappointment, as it would have been fun to browse through those as well.

All in all, it was a fun but typical stop that helped to break up our drive a bit.
