Replica of Davy Crockett's Home (above) and interior displays (below). Located just half a block from Lawrenceburg Square and New Moon Antiques.
One-half mile west of Lawrenceburg is the lovely Davy Crockett State Park, with hiking trails, a lake for fishing, cabins for rent, RV parking, and a fabulous restaurant overlooking the lake. Lawrenceburg , Tennessee, with a population of about 14,000, sits among some of the most scenic and historic country in Tennessee. Surrounding farms are a mecca for fresh produce enthusiasts, and occasional buffalo dot the lush pastures.
The Amish community of Ethridge is just a few miles north, and Amish buggies can often be seen on the roads.
At one time, Davy Crockett made his home here and his welcoming likeness anchors the historic Lawrenceburg Square, just across from New Moon Antiques. The Square is also home to the oldest American-Mexican War monument. Lawrenceburg was also the hometown of James Vaughan, (1864 – 1941) the father of Southern Gospel, and the James Vaughan Museum is a popular attraction on the Square. Vaughn was also active in politics and served as mayor of Lawrenceburg from 1924 to 1927 - a position his brother, and later, his son, would also claim.

Since 1944, Lawrenceburg County has been home to a large population of Amish, mostly in nearby Ethridge. There are over 300 Amish farms in the surrounding hills where you can purchase everything from arts and crafts, to produce. Everything the Amish produce is done without the use of electricity.
If you are fortunate, you might see their horse-drawn buggies on the roads around town. Please respect their right to the road!
