Poe's Tavern

Poe's Tavern Historical Park

 In 1818, a quaint log structure was built at the intersection of Washington Pike and Sequatchie-Dallas Trail, the work of Hasten Poe, a veteran of the War of 1812. Operating as a tavern and inn, the area became known as Poe's Cross Roads. In 1819, when Hamilton County was being formed, the tavern was chosen as the first courthouse and county seat. This site holds a significant place in our local history, marking the starting point of our city's civic journey, where the pillars of governance and community life were established. 

Events: Pioneer Days is held at Poe's Tavern Historical Park where we celebrate frontier culture and the community's past. There are historical exhibits on how iron was forged, wood carved, and baskets made, along with food and period music.
There is a Farmer's Market held every Saturday in May - October,  from  8:00 am to Noon.
