Homestead house that we toured


The purpose of this stop was to meet up with Geri and her husband, Pat. Geri and I lived across the street from each other over 50 years ago and we try to meet up somewhere once a year. This time we were joined by her brother, Robbie, and it was great to see him again. We all enjoyed our visit and going down "memory lane". We stayed at the Cumberland Mountain State Park campground. The sites were paved and ours had full hook-ups (30 amp). They stayed in a cabin which was named "Coon Hollow" and it had an interesting design. We saw a doe and fawn while we were sitting in the yard there. We toured the Homestead Tower Museum and one of the homes from this period. The homes were part of Roosevelt's New Deal. Families were offered the opportunity to move there and learn a skill and use it to build their barn, home and to help their neighbors build theirs. If you are ever in this area you should also eat at the Sister's Restaurant. The breakfast was good, price was reasonable and the two sisters who owned it were friendly and helpful.
