The Cumberland Homesteads
Tower and Museum

Located on Hwy127 South in the Homesteads Community, the Tower stands tall like a beacon. The community was created as part of the New Deal of President Franklin D. Roosevelt to help ease the financial strain caused by the Great Depression of the 1930s. The Tower sits in the fork of Hwy 127 South to the right and Hwy 68 to the left. A drive through this community will reveal beautiful pasture land and Homestead homes built from the local stone quarried in Crab Orchard. A visit to the tower will enlighten you to this era and the view from the top of the tower reveals the beauty of Tennessee's Cumberland Plateau.

 

Pioneer Hall Museum

The Pleasant Hill Community is very important to Cumberland County's history due to Doctor May Wharton who founded the first hospital in our area. It was eventually closed and relocated as CMC our Cumberland Medical Center, named as one of the 100 hospitals in America. Pioneer Hall houses other important early history of Cumberland County with memorabilia from the Pleasant Hill Academy.  Open from spring until fall each year from 10 AM to 4 PM on Wednesdays and from 2 to 5 PM on Sundays.  Other hours are available by appointment.  Admission is free.  For information call 277-3872 or 277-3051.  

Crabtree House Museum

Crabtree House, located in the historic Homesteads on Pigeon Ridge Road, was recently added to the historical landmarks of the Homesteads and is open daily 10 AM to 5 PM and Sunday 12 PM to 5 PM.  It was built in the early- to mid-1030s and  once sat on 35 acres of farmland.  For more information, call 484-8529.
