Cabin dedicated to family that lived at Davy Crockett's homestead


A series of reenactments and demonstrations over the weekend celebrated the birthday of Davy Crockett. Saturday morning started with a march, music and musket demonstrations at Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park.

The cabin at the park entrance was dedicated to the Stonecypher family who owned the land for nearly 100 years.

"This is what we worked for for years,” Ruth Stonecypher Russell said. “trying to make people aware of what went on here and how it was set up."

The family preserved the history of the land for generations before turning it over to Tennessee in 1973.
