Before 1779, the area known as Nashville was an uncharted wilderness. On Christmas Eve of that year, the first settlers traveled by boat down the Cumberland River and settled on this spot. The settlement became known as Fort Nashborough, from which Nashville later took its name. The present-day Fort Nashborough is the third replica of the original fort and can be visited free of charge by the visitors. It is authentic in many details and reflects the lifestyle of the frontier pioneers of the late 1700s.
