Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park

Today Noelle, Sierra, Parker and I set out to explore our new home area a little bit more. We visited the Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park in Limestone, Tennessee. There is not a whole lot at this park. There is a swimming pool, campground, and a few short trails. There is also a small cabin that represents the type of home that Crockett would have been born in on the Tennessee frontier.

The cabin is set along the banks of the Nolichucky River and there is a nice monument marking the site of Davy Crockett's birth. As a matter of fact, there are actually two of them. There is the modern one that was installed in the 1960s

and an older one (actually the engraved footstone of the original cabin).

Both were interesting.
