Director Kimberly Lynn said, “We are often asked about Saturday hours for tours
and for shopping in the Visitor’s Center Gift Shop. Not only do we hear this request from our own

thru the area on the weekend. Our team
is thrilled to fulfill those requests on the first Saturday of each month.”
Station portrays a significant time period in Tennessee history. Mansker’s Fort is a replica log station that
was built in the Middle Tennessee area in 1779.
The original Bowen House is the oldest standing brick home in Middle
Tennessee and was constructed in 1787 by Captain William Bowen and was the
birthplace of Tennessee Governor William Bowen Campbell. Guests who visit Mansker’s Fort and the Bowen
House will experience life at Historic Mansker’s Station through a hands-on tour
guided by interpreters clothed in 18th Century attire. Admission fees range $6-$8 and children 5 and under are free.
