Middle Tennessee has a rich history as one of the most fertile agricultural regions in the United States. It was agriculture – the land and its bounty – that shaped the men and women who contributed to our way of life and made many of our towns and cities the important centers of business and river trade they are today.

Many of the living history sites and historic homes listed here were the farms of some of our most important figures in Tennessee history. Many of our museums are full of the tools, implements and household furnishings necessary to live. Tennessee has many Civil War battlefields and historic homes important to these battles and to preserving the history of that time. Much like the beauty of the land, the character of the people is reflected in the historic homes, museums, churches, and special events that celebrate the past.

You will find contact information for each of the thirteen counties in the Middle Tennessee Tourism Council. Please contact them through this website or by phone to check local events and check individual attractions for hours and directions.

Be sure to check the Tennessee Department of Agriculture web site, http://www.picktnproducts.org, for more information on many of the agri-tourism attractions and individual farms. This project is made possible by the sale of agriculture specialty license plates (the “Ag Tag”). Funds received from the “Ag Tag” sales are returned to the agricultural community in the form of grants for youth programs, market development projects, and other agricultural projects.
