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.
