Bringing my ancestors to life.

The Homeplace 1850’s Working farm and living History Museum

Immerse yourself in a history in this pre Civil War farm where interpreters in period dress go about their daily seasonal chores. You’ll find many authentic artifacts, structures, endangered breeds of livestock and even heirloom plants and field crops.

We visited a few years ago and that visit formed the basis for the multi family farm in A Twist of Tobacco. The feel; the smell; the very atmosphere would wash over me as I wrote about the everyday lives of my ancestors.

If you are ever in the north Tennessee area take time to spend the day experiencing this hidden gem. And while in the area be sure to visit Dover and Ft. Donelson.


Heritage Oxen
The day we were there in late summer the ladies were canning fresh tomatoes right out of the garden.
