This Historic Village Near Nashville Will Transport You Into A Different Time
Fiddlers Grove is a quirky little spot, hidden away on the ground of the James E. Ward Agricultural Center just outside Nashville in Lebanon, Tennessee. It’s a throwback in time to a place a bit simpler, a story a bit harder to live, but one that nonetheless paints a picture of Tennessee’s roots. Have you visited?
Fiddlers Grove is meant to be a time capsule. It's a form of preserving Wilson County and its past, a living testament to its history and the future of Tennessee itself.
The tiniest little post office you ever did see? It was relocated in 1991, after beginning service in 1910.
The site is the location of Civil War reenactments, and there are multiple weddings and festivals held on an annual basis.
Fiddlers Grove shares a location with the Wilson County Fairgrounds. With the multiple events that take place here on an annual basis, you have the ability to walk through Fiddlers Grove at any time of the year. It's a bit of history that's rife with tourist interest.
This is where Sam Houston practiced law during his time in Tennessee. It's very small and quaint, though exceedingly rough. He would later go on to serve as governor of the state for a short period, before his later historic glories that would occur outside of the state.
Just an FYI - these buildings were relocated from various places in the area. They didn't all gather here naturally, but they sure paint a lovely picture of the past.
Pretty magic, hey? If you’re still looking for a bit of history,
