Cannonsburgh Village

Murfressboro, TN

 

Stepping back in time is fun and interesting and gives one a different perspective of how things were done in the past. Cannonsburgh Village, south of Nashville gave me ample time to reflect on building materials and a sense of community. Something obvious to me was the use of wood to make log cabins, rocking chairs, porches, the schoolhouse, tables, and chairs. 

 

While looking at so many different wooden things and ways to construct building materials, I am in awe thinking about the necessity of wind to plant the seeds that grows the trees with rain and water. As a squirrel rushes past, I'm reminded how dependent they are for the nuts and acorns they gather in the fall for survival. As for pioneers from years ago, today, people are still dependent on natural resources and alternative products that don't grow out of the ground. For future generations, sustainability must be taught and utilized. As for high priority, it has to be consumer safety for all creatures on earth. 

 

Adjacent to building structures at Cannonsburgh Village is the trees and various birds that disperse the seeds as they soar within this community. Nature is always working. Within the earliest villages and communities, there was at least one school, church, and general store. People are constantly learning. At this particular Village, there was a one-room doctor's office. To have a fine physician and medical care takes top priority in every community. Stepping back in time on occasion is educational and reflective on re-discovering how essential it is to find the right community and not just live there, but to be an active participant in providing the tools, growing the food, teaching the children, and being of value by giving back to the community in which you live.

Good morning Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP, what a great trip you had. Imagine having one school, one-room doctor's office. I'm just fascinated by old villages and their way of life back then. They survived without electronic gadgets and we are addicted to them.

Sheila Anderson - I am so pleased to read your comment. Thank you!

If we take the time to look around, history presents valuable lessons. As part of the human race, we should never stop learning.

Have a wonderful day!

Beth Atalay - We can write an essay on things people learned how to do without expensive electronic gadgets - that's for sure!

I had an amazing trip, filled with revelations and learning! Survival of the fittest is contingent on how well the village is built and the people within the community cooperate. Back then, they didn't need FaceBook. Everyone knew each other's face! And I'm sure no kid could get away with even attempting to do something stupid or bad. 

It's always great to hear from you. Thanks!

Nina Hollander - I feel the same way. It is as if it puts you in touch with tapestry strings of the past that belong to your ancestors from another era. I am so fascinated by the simplicity and challenges that made them strong. For me, it is one of the best archeological digs into the past without experiencing ruins.

Myrl Jeffcoat - Thank you for the FEATURE! I am glad you liked the photo too! 

I also like places like Cannonsburgh where you get a clear vision of what it was like and not just words on paper inside a book. Walking around the Village makes you feel like you are experiencing what it was like back then. I was lucky because there was only one other family on the other side of the Village and didn't have to wait my turn or mingle with the fam. I really had lots of time to think which is exactly what I needed. Myrl, can you imagine being a Real Estate Agent selling property made out of logs???

Oh, I love stepping back in time, Patricia and your observations are spot-on about the wind, the birds and all that is necessary to create a village. Makes you want to return to simpler times, doesn't it?

The one-room doctor's office struck me. Nowadays, if you're not in an area with a Level I Trauma Center nearby, you're 'in the woods!' For all of the advancements in modern medicine, the basics are still at the foundation.

Debe Maxwell, CRS - Yes! I'm afraid children are missing out the most. Have their simpler times been changed for scary times? Our children of the world are in need of protection and should be a top priority. Here are some additional photos for you. I'm pretty sure health insurance didn't exit:

Hi Patricia, thanks for sharing your thoughts on this back in time trip. It is so important to see those important basics from time to time, and to reflect upon them. One-room doctor's office means the dctor focused enrirely on one patient at a time. Is it too much to dream about it for today's doctors' practices?
