  • I love history and this place packs a lot in one small museum. It's inexpensive to tour and I recommend donating extra to help maintain this piece of history. The views from the tower are nice and they hold a little apple festival craft fair here in the fall.
  • Place runs off volunteer help. The guy we met today was very helpful and was a fountain of history, not only with what you'll find in the museum but experience of passed down knowledge. The tower itself is free to climb, but beware there are a lot of idiots that etch their names on the water tank and the wood at the top. I'm sure that if they could they would carve them into the stone walls. Great place to step back in time. An 11 minute video gives a great look into why the place is there. The cost is extremely cheap and for a little more you can visit one of the homesteads. Gift shop has some wonderful items and in the fall they have the best apples for sale.
  • I enjoyed all the history and artifacts. I learned a lot about the new deal and how it affected middle Tennessee.
  • Great lil place to visit. Beautiful views.
  • Closed today, but still a great place for historical value. The town, Cumberland Homesteads, is significant, too.
