There’s A Train-Themed Village Hiding In Tennessee And It’s Perfect For A Day Trip

Tennessee is known for its history. From the frontier days to the bitter battles of the Civil War, it seems like you can hardly shake a stick in Tennessee without the stick being a part of something historic. Okay, that’s a stretch, but it’s true that there are more historic places than you would think. For example, did you know that the most famous train engineer who ever lived was from Tennessee and that his house is now a historic train village? It’s true! Step back in time 100 years to the times of Casey Jones.
