Nestled in the rolling hills of scenic Middle Tennessee, the seat of Cannon County has witnessed so much history. The Trail of Tears passed through the square in 1838, as thousands of Cherokee were forced to relocate to present-day Oklahoma. During the Civil War, local citizens welcomed and fed soldiers commanded by Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest here before they continued westward to the Battle of Murfreesboro in 1862. Take time to explore the quaint square and its unique restaurants and one-of-a- kind shops like Antiques on the Square.
