From the settlers who first came to Tennessee, to the beginning residents who put down roots as farmers and politicians in our great state as it developed westward, Tennessee has a rich history which starts in the early 1800’s, through the Civil War, and on through, all of which shaped the destiny of our great state. Did you know there was an Elephant Sanctuary? Or a museum just for children or a hands-on museum? How about flight simulators and wind tunnels at Arnold Air Force Base, open to the public? Did you know there were Amish who migrated to Tennessee? There are historic markers scattered throughout our part of Tennessee also, just waiting for you to discover them. Imagine having your wedding or special event at one of these amazing plantations.
