Cannonsburg Pioneer Village / Bike Trail
Historic Cannonsburgh Pioneer Village, the Conference site, represents approximately 100 years of rural Tennessee life from the 1830s to the 1930s. The Village features a gristmill, schoolhouse, telephone operator’s house, the University House, the Leeman House, a museum, a caboose, the wedding chapel, a doctor’s office, general store, working blacksmith’s shop, a well, and other points of interest, including the World’s Largest Cedar Bucket! From the village there are bike trails that follow the Stones River.
There are two shopping centers to choose from – the Stones River Mall and The Avenue, or if you prefer a more intimate experience, check out Murfreesboro’s downtown square for unique shops and antiques within walking distance.
If you are a history buff you have many choices. You can visit Bradley Academy, The Heritage Center, Oakland Historic House Museum, the Same Davis House and Museum, and Stones River National Battlefield to name a few. There are numerous pre-civil war estates in the area as well.
If you have younger children, check out the Discovery Center at Murfree Spring just a couple of blocks from the Village. It is full of hands on interactive science lessons and activities.
