Get a glimpse of Nashville's earliest days..
On Christmas Eve in 1779, a group of determined pioneers traveled down the Cumberland River on flatboats, settling on its banks in what was still the Wild West. They carved a new life out of the rugged terrain, struggling against the elements and many other hardships to build Fort Nashborough. A replica, one-fourth the size of the original fort, now stands in Riverfront Park and is open for history buffs to take 20 minute tours.
Neat, But Not Much To See. Being a history buff, I like Fort Nashborough, but there is really not much to see there. A few old restored buildings and a statue. If you have a short attention span, though, the good news is that it only takes about 10 minutes to see the whole thing!
