Owner description: A replica of the boyhood home of Tennessee legend Davy Crockett.
Reviewed August 13, 2014

We had gone to Morristown with our adult daughter and her 2 kids (13 and 10) because my husband is descended from Gideon Morris, the town's founder and namesake. We stopped here kind of on a whim. It looked small and we thought we'd pop in for a few minutes. Wow!! The docent (Sally?) knew everything, related information to Gideon Morris, engaged our reluctant 10 year old grandson by asking him what he thought items had been used for, and gave us an entertaining and interesting history lesson. $5 per person is a bargain! Do not miss this.

My cousin, Claude suggested that I go through Morristown on the way home. After a restroom stop at the credit union there ( I know that sounds weird) it was suggested we stop by Crockett Tavern Museum. We did. We had a wonderful, educated, animated and entertaining tour guide who, you can tell truly loves her job, and shows that to her it's more than a job. We learned a lot about Davy Crockett, king of the wild frontier!!! What are you waiting for? Stop by today!!!

This was a great place to visit. Our tour guide was very informative and had a great way of explaining life as it was in the time of Davy Crockett.

This little place is a gem for all ages. The lady who runs the place has a vast knowledge of the history of the Crockett family and the local area. The displayed items are interesting and so special to see and experience the way is used to be way...back...when! Pay attention to the times of operation and all or you may miss the place being open. A little out of the way from the Smoky Mountain area but well worth the effort..

Lots of history, everyone needs to remember Davy Crockett not just for TN, but USA history. It is a small wooden cabin with some small out buildings. It can be hot, although location is surrounded by big trees. Mild days or fall is best time, if heat bothers you. It has a lot more to offer than it looks like.
