Tracing our way to Shiloh

  As we began our final field trip of our Tennessee history study unit, we made a quick stop at Loveless Cafe to pick up some hot biscuits and peach preserves. If you’ve never had a Loveless biscuit, you’re missing out on one of Nashville’s great treasures.   The Natchez Trace Parkway is a peaceful […]

  The weather was so unseasonably warm we decided to take off to Bicentennial Mall with a picnic lunch. We walked down the Mall timeline of Tennessee and Clark selected a beautiful spot for our lunch…right in front of the capitol!            

As Chloe’s Tennessee history unit continues, we found ourselves studying what Nashville is known for, Country Music. We toured the historic Ryman Auditorium and learned about how the Grand Ole Opry got its start. The Ryman played it’s part as a host building during the Centennial celebration in 1897. That’s when the balcony was constructed […]
