Cannonsburg is located in the downtown area of Murfreesboro. There are events all year long. Also, daily tours of the grounds. If you would like to see how it was 100yrs ago, Cannonsburgh is for you.

We killed 45 minutes before it was respectable to eat lunch here. The buildings were closed, but we walked around, read the explanatory signs, played with the cats, and took some photos. I wouldn't drive two hours to get here. There are plenty of restored villages around, and this one is small. But it's worth a bit of time if you are nearby. Kids will like it.

Well maintained property with a very convenient location. The relocated historic buildings were interesting, but there wasn't enough explanation to really get the full background, especially the various artifacts in the cotton barn. If you're in town it's worth an hour's visit. The telephone bulding was my favorite - well done and definitely insight into another era, especially for women. Farm machinery enthusiasts [I know you're out there!] would probably really love this place, since there's a huge shed full of old tractors and other equipment. The rest of us - those who don't already know what the machines were used for - are reduced to guessing due to absent signage. Several buildings were closed to visitors the day we were there.
