This replica home is located along Charlotte Pk. (US70) in what used to be H.G. Hill Park. Portions of the park are still there, but this is now surrounded by Nashville West shopping center and multiple new businesses.

Text of this historic marker:
1.2 mile NE James Robertson built his cabin in 1779 at 23rd and Park. In October 1784 Robertson moved to his Richland Creek farm, living in the log structure until 1787, when the first brick house in Middle Tennessee was completed. Called Travellers' Rest until 1816, the brick house, which burned in 1902, was located inside his fort at 5904 Robertson Road. The two-story log house was dismantled in 1970. The replica at this site was erected during the 1996 Tennessee Bicentennial by the West Nashville Founders' Museum Association.

Founders Hall - Athens (AL) State UniverrsityFounders Hall - Athens (AL) State Univerrsity

Founders Hall was built in 1844 and is the iconic building on the campus of Athens State University. The building is listed on the Alabama Register of Landmarks and Heritage and on the National Register of Historic Places as part of the Athens State College Historic District. It houses many offices including the President plus a parlor and chapel. Before it was a state school, Athens College was affiliated with the Methodist church and the four columns have been named Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

If you like ghost stories, this university is said to be one of the most haunted in the south. There is a story of a lady who tried to escape from her dorm room by candle-light when a gust of wind caught her hair on fire. Her spirit is said to roam the halls and some have claimed to see a candle-light in these windows at night.

General Braxton Bragg who had his headquarters in LaFayette, planned the Battle of Chickamauga under an old oak tree that stood in front of this building and was known as "Bragg's Oak." The tree was destroyed by lightning a few years ago. The LaFayette Chapters of the D.A.R. and U.D.C. purchased this historic building to preserve it. It was renamed John B. Gordon Hall for Gen.

For those of you who don't live near Nashville, Purity Dairies is the perhaps the most popular brand of milk and ice cream in the area. (Their ads also launched the career of Jim Varney as Ernest.)

It's on the side of a building in the small downtown area of Smyrna, TN. I think the building was the Regal Theater from 1910-1958. After that, it was the Theater Grill.

This 50's mural was renovated in Sept. 2016. Learn more about the project in this Daily News Journal article:
www.dnj.com/story/news/2016/09/24/refurbished-purity-dair...
Highlights of the article include how Purity was consulted to find the original paint color, and how th elocal Carpe Artista worked with the Nashville Walls Project.

This is what it looked like before it was restored:

SeeMidTN.com (aka Brent) posted a photo:

When you're on the highway and it says that Nashville is 37 miles away, it means you are 37 miles from this marker, which notes, "Distances on state highways measured from this point." TDOT placed this marker at Bicentennial Mall State Park when it opened in 1996.

The original Zero Milestone was placed om May 12, 1924 at the corner of Union Street and Sixth Ave. in Downtown. Later it was relocated in front of the highway department's new building on Charlotte Ave. Later, a new TDOT building was built and this multi-ton stone was misplaced. The new zero milestone seen here was added to the park after an extensive search for the original yielded no results.

Kickapoo Joy Juice & Fruit ShineKickapoo Joy Juice & Fruit Shine

SeeMidTN.com (aka Brent) posted a photo:

This is the second time I have found Kickapoo Joy Juice. The first time, the label said, "Kickapoo Joy Juice, a magical concoction first enjoyed in Al Capp's Li'l Abner, leaves people all over the world happy and cravin' for more since 1934."

This soft drink is based on the Li'l Abner cartoon which began in 1934, but the actual product was started by NuGrape in 1965. Like Mountain Dew, the brand advertised with a hillbilly motif. I wish the label still had L'il Abner on it like it used to.

For the taste, the obvious comparison is Mountain Dew since they are both highly caffeinated citrus beverages. I think the taste of this is slightly sweeter and reminds me more of store brand citrus sodas.

This is the first time I had the Fruit Shine which is Sangria flavored. I don't really care for Sangria, so I didn't particularly care for it.
