“Where Davy Crockett called home”

Davy Crockett is a genuine American hero. As a frontiersman, politician, and warrior, he won acclaim and a permanent place in the lore that forms the history of America. He may be best known a martyr at the Alamo in Texas' battle for independence.

A replica of the Crockett family well was constructed on the site of the original (located in 1949) for the Centennial celebration. Representatives from the Alamo visited the city. Leaders from Morristown visited San Antonio, TX. Proceeds from the Centennial celebration were sought by the local APTA chapter to build a memorial to the Crockett family. Groundbreaking for the site was held on August 17, 1956. The initial idea was to build a formal museum with a statue of the Alamo hero out in front.

Due to funding restraints, a log cabin structure was completed which represented the type of building that would have housed a tavern such as the one run by Davy's father, John Crockett. Numerous material donations of logs, large building stones, and items of historical significance from old homes and other buildings in Hamblen and surrounding counties were included in the project. The end result was the opening of the Crockett Tavern Museum on April 21, 1958.

Small neat place cost 5 dollars a person. Worth a quick visit tour takes 1 hour. Plenty of parking in rear and has public restrooms. Free to walk yard and take pictures.
