Brown County Historical Museum

Description

You'll find an 1850s pioneer cabin, the 1879 log jail, a doctor's office, blacksmith shop, and loom room for spinning and weaving at this collection of authentically furnished historic structures. You can get a guided tour on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays, between 1 PM and 4:30 PM, from May to October. Tours cost $1.50. The buildings can always be viewed from the outside for free. You'll find them on Museum Lane, behind the county courthouse in Nashville. Open weekends and holidays from 1 PM to 5 PM. When it's time to find a meal, Nashville is filled with charming family restaurants offering traditional hearty dining. A few of the most popular of Nashville's many eating establishments are the Brown County Inn at the intersection of State Routes 135 and 46 (800-772-5249); the Hob Nob Corner, a colorful former apothecary with wooden booths and a genuine soda fountain at the corner of Main and Van Buren streets (812-988-4114); and the Nashville House, which has been a town tradition since 1859 at 15 S. Van Buren (812-988-4554).
