The Bowen Plantation House, circa 1787, is one of the oldest brick homes in Middle Tennessee. It was the home of William Bowen, a Captain in the Virginia Militia during the American Revolution.

Mansker's Fort is an authentic reconstruction of a 1779 frontier fortified station typical of early Cumberland Settlements.

While at the fort, you can experience the lifestyles of early settlers through living history demonstrations. Enjoy yesterdays as they come alive inside the fort. Touch hand-hewn timbers, see the blacksmith work, and smell the smoke from the cook fire.
