Serving as an accommodation for riverboat travelers before and after the Civil War. It also was the place where Gen. Buckner and his staff used as their headquarters during the battle. It served as the hospital after the surrender. Much relevant Civil War history happened here. It was here at the Surrender House on Feb. 16, 1862 following a council of war with Brigade Generals Floyd and Pillow, Brigade General Simmon B. Buckner to the confederate defenders of Fort Donelson to Major General U.S. Grant, USA. The two senior confederate generals, having abandoned command escaped Lt. Nathan Bedford Forest, refusing to agree to the surrender, led his calvary regiment and a number of infantry men out of the defense without loosing a man or meeting oppostion.
Fort Donelson is just a short 10 minute drive from the Campground.

This farm is part of the Revolutionary War land grant, issued as a land warrant. The owner Mr. Coolant's took possession of the assigned 40 acres on 12/01/1808. The hollow where the Home Place now stands & worked their land holding for the next 10 years.
Farmers were fortunate to be located near the major mode of transportation for that day, the river. They lived between the Cumberland & Tennessee Rivers, this area is known as the four rivers, as it is also between the Ohio & Mississippi. The crossroad has a significant impact on farm life. News & goods usually reached farms within a few weeks, and sending farm raised produce & livestock was convenient.
It is a working history farm. Most of the farm & livestock are historic varieties from the Mid 19th- century.
When you visit you will see the men folk at work with their oxen, harvesting and curing tobacco, repairing a roof and you may even lend a hand at the walking plow or help in the repair of a fence.
This is a trip for the entire family.
