Today we toured the historic Rock Castle mansion and I fell completely in love with it and its warm history. I have to say, I am a sucker for old tales and old things…Tennessee, at least these small nearby cities , Gallatin, Hendersonville, Portland and Goodlettsville are full of civil war history and museums, amazing green rolling hills and farms and the friendliest of people. If you have ever considered vacationing here I would highly recommend it, especially with littles. I shared with you all the reasons why we decided to homeschool our boys last week and I’m just so lucky that the husband is working in such a history rich town, as I can use many of these “fun outings” to keep us from going mad from being in a tiny hotel room all day and as field trips to teach them a little history; they have been having such fun answering tour questions and learning fun details about past US presidents. We’ve definitely incorporated more history into our homeschool plan that’s for sure.
You can learn a little about Historic Rock Castle here and you can check out their website here for more information.
I leave up with some pictures from our tour, thanks for reading.
