David Crockett Birthplace State Park

State Park in East Tennessee

Mountain men don't leave behind a lot of artifacts, unfortunately, so you won't find any original coonskin caps here, just lots of replicas for sale. Informational displays about the famous frontiersman line the walls – right through someone's office and along the hallway to the bathrooms! Of most interest is the reproduced 1700s cabin and homestead out back beside the pretty Nolichucky River, all in the vicinity of where Crockett was born.
