Do you want to learn more about your historic Downtown? Do you have visiting family or guests? New to the area? If you answer yes to any of these questions, take advantage of the FREE walking tour of historic Downtown Crossville. Departing at 10am every Thursday starting in April through early November, you and your guests can enjoy a leisurely stroll and the stories and legends that made our downtown so special.
The guided tour starts at the renovated Depot, at the corner of Main Street and North Street, learning how Crossville came to be and the importance of the railroad to our prosperity. See where First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt stayed and the first silent movie theater was located. Make a quick stop to observe the daily "Liar's Club" in operation at the famous Mitchell Drugs.
Still moving south, learn about the rich history of the military veterans, the legal system, and the world famous Crab Orchard Stone. Always proud of our cultural history, feast your eyes on the historic Mural, tour the restored Palace Theater, and enjoy meeting friendly business owners and citizens along the way.
Over in about an hour, make time to have lunch downtown and more thoroughly visit the attractions and stores that make Downtown Crossville a wonderful place.
No reservations are required, but please call for a large group so we can have enough tour guides. Thursday not convenient? DCI will accommodate group tours at other days and times. We have toured many family and class reunions, wedding parties, civic groups, and new residents.
