Named for longhunter and settler Kasper Mansker, the areaÂ’s earliest white resident, this fort is an authentic reconstruction of a frontier station typical of the early Cumberland settlements. Within the park youÂ’ll also find the 1787 Bowen Plantation House, restored in the 1980s to preserve and showcase elements of frontier life. Tour the fort and home starting at the visitors center in beautiful Moss-Wright Park; if youÂ’re lucky, you may find yourself here during one of the many living history weekends. Open March-Dec.
