A small and beautiful community that honors their local hero. If you're passing through, I recommend stopping in and learning about this local hero who captured over a hundred Nazis single handedly at one time.
If you are ever in Jamestown or Pall Mall you definitely need to stop by. Stop at the York general store across from the York home and watch the documentary of the life of Sgt. York. Make sure you ask the store manager questions, he was very informative and friendly. Then head across the street for a self guided tour at your own pace. When I went the young gentleman working there was a soon-to-be history teacher. He had an unbelievable amount of knowledge of the area, Sgt. York and his family, the home, the time period, and even Mark Twain's father and his time living in the area. I was thoroughly impressed. I only wished I had more time to explore the park, the gristmill, the Bible School, and the burial site. DID I MENTION IT WAS FREE! Please visit here, you will not regret it.
lt was one of best trips i have ever made. I learned a lot i didn't know. The people were the friendlies you could ever what to meet. I will be back for sure.
Enjoyed our visit! Enjoyed our visit and talk with Sgt. York's daughter in law inside the York home.

Dropped by while on a drive 3-9-14, this was pre-season and on a Sunday. Andrew Jackson York, Alvin's son was manning his station in his family home as the Park Ranger in resident enjoying telling all who would come about the life of his father and growing up in the home given to his father by the state of Tennessee after his wwI service and given back to the state of Tennessee after his death. Was a great personal experience and I walked away respecting Sgt. York even more than I had before seeing how he lived his life and served his country and community. Do not fail to take the 1/2 mile walk along the river to the swinging bridge. The grave site is nice, but the walk will be remembered for years to come. -Sean
