The Buchanan Log House Annual Folk Festival will be Saturday, September 24, 2016 from 10am to 5pm.  The festival features the 19th Alabama Civilian Corps Encampment, demonstrators showing quilting, basket weaving, blacksmithing, wood carving and more.  Animal demonstrations include sheep, alpacas and goats.  Old-Timey Games and Train Rides are provided for the children.  Food and drinks are available. Admission and Parking are Free.

Thanks to the efforts of the Friends of Buchanan Station Cemetery, funds were raised to install an iron fence around this fundamental historic site for Nashville.  Also installed was interpretative signage so visitors can learn about the great importance of the battle that happened there as one of the first settlements of Nashville.
