  • Why Not Make it a History Trip
  •  

    Back to where we began, Davey Crockett's boyhood home between Russellville and Morristown, TN. The photo shows an old buckboard wagon behind Crockett's Tavern,  used by the early pioneers (including Crockett) in the westward migration of the country - Remember, "Go West Young Man"? Not shown in the photo album is the Cumberland Gap, a few miles NW of towns listed here, where the early pioneers discovered the "gap", or passageway over the Cumberland Mountains, which then became the gateway to the West.
