Before 1779, the area known as Nashville was an uncharted wilderness. On Christmas Eve of that year these first settlers traveled by boat down the Cumberland River and settled on this spot. The settlement became known as Fort Nashborough, from which Nashville later took its name. This replica of the original settlement is authentic in many details and reflects the lifestyle of the frontier pioneers of the late 1700's. Visitors can take a 20-minute self-guided tour.
