Historic Collinsville is open for self-guided audio tours Thursday - Sunday, April through October. Weekly activities provide educational and interactive opportunities to learn about specific topics like herbs and medicines, planting techniques, how pioneers received news and more.
The Historic Collinsville Pioneer Settlement shows the story of life in rural Tennessee from 1830-1900, over 40 sprawling rural acres. The authentic period furnishings and artifacts in 16 restored log homes and outbuildings chronicle life before and after the Civil War. A wildlife center houses several examples of natural Tennessee flora and fauna. A church/schoolhouse and adjacent teacher's house represent learning and worship at the turn of the century. An 1865 dog trot house demonstrates the vast difference between an affluent family after the Civil War and 1842, 13-person two-room Lewis House before the war in 1842.
Plan a full afternoon of learning and fun! Bring along a picnic -- tables are scattered around the property or take advantage of a covered pavilion.
