"NORRIS, TN" Norris by CJD68

Norris Travel Guide: 30 reviews and 38 photos

A little town off I-75 that offered a convenient stopping point to eat and stretch our legs between Carterville, GA & Cincinnati, OH.

If you follow the signs to the "Museum of Appalachia", you will be pleasantly surprised. It is a large expanse of land with live animals and a number of buildings that serve to show how the people lived and some of the artifacts associated with the folks of appalachia. I think it was about $10/adult and free for smaller children. There were chicken, turkeys, peacocks, sheep, horses, roosters and other animals to see up close. Also, one building had several musicians playing folk tunes on typical instruments. You could spend a few hours here and it'd be well worth your time.
