Crockett Tavern Museum

David Crockett

If you’re looking for a history museum in Morristown, Tennessee, the Crockett Tavern Museum should be on your list. The Crockett Tavern Museum is a historical site dedicated to David “Davy” Crockett, an American folk hero. It’s just a short drive from the town’s historical sites, and is one of the area’s most popular attractions.

The museum first opened its doors in 1958, at the height of Davy Crockett’s fame. It was where the famed Tennessee cowboy grew up, so the Crockett Tavern Museum is a recreation of Davy Crockett’s boyhood house.

The museum is housed in a historic structure and offers a range of public activities and tours. Local activities are also held at the Crockett Tavern Museum. Reenactments, live music, and refreshments are available to visitors. It also houses Davy’s Trading Post, a tiny gift shop where visitors may buy Crockett-related products.

While many artifacts from his past are on display, the museum’s main focus is on Davy’s life. The museum’s primary goal is to educate visitors and encourage research on Crockett. It’s an excellent resource for learning about the esteemed hero’s life and achievements.

The Crockett Tavern Museum is managed entirely by volunteers and is open to the public for free.

The Panther Creek and Cherokee Reservoir

In addition to a history museum, Panther Creek and Cherokee Reservoir, a 1,400-acre state park, are located in the town. In the region, you can camp overnight, swim, or horseback ride.
