Just outside of Nashville, TN, there is an idyllic small town reminiscent of Mayberry and a time when things were slower. Dickson, Tennessee is everyone’s hometown dream. When you take time to stroll along Main Street in Historic Downtown Dickson, you will be greeted by friendly locals. Stop into the different unique shops, grab a cup of coffee, or even a bite to eat as you make your way to the Clement Railroad Hotel Museum. At the museum, you will learn about the rich history of Dickson County, everything from railroads to the Civil War to Civil Rights. 

If you want to continue the path of our history, take a leisurely drive to Charlotte, Tennessee. You can visit Tennessee’s Oldest Working Courthouse on the Historic Charlotte Square, The Promise Land Community, and even hike to an original iron furnace in Cumberland Furnace. After your historic tour on our winding back roads, stop into our infamous Amish market, Country View Market. Relax on the porch with an ice cream cone or hand-made sandwich.
