    »Tennessee Agricultural Museum

    Less than ten minutes south of the busy downtown district is a poignant reminder of life as it was in the 18th and 19th centuries. Farming was a way of life for early settlers in middle Tennessee, and Tennessee Agricultural Museum features a host of artifacts and farming implements. The renovated horse barn contains over 2,500 items on display, tracing the history of pioneer families. Special activities for children make this a true hands-on educational experience. Butter churning, corn shelling, quilting and story telling bring youngsters into the action and provide hours of fun and learning for all ages.

On November 30, 1864, Carnton was occupied by Confederate troops moving toward the well-entrenched Federal army. A devastating battle ensued. Later, the mansion housed hundreds of the more than 6,000 Confederate casualties from that battle. Adjacent to the property is the largest private Confederate cemetery in America.
