Last Home of Davy Crockett

The Davy Crockett cabin, located at 219 North Trenton Street in Rutherford, Tennessee is a reconstruction of the cabin he lived in between 1822-1835. This cabin was originally in a field west of Rutherford. It is here that he resided while he electioneered for and served three terms in Congress.

The original 2 story log cabin was dismantled and rebuilt on the present site. Two rooms on the first floor, serve as a museum of furniture and utensils used in the early days of the Tennessee frontier. The second floor is accessible and served as a sleeping area as well as a place for the ladies of the Crockett family to spin yarn.

Also on the grounds of the cabin is the relocated grave of Colonel Crockett’s mother, Rebecca Hawkins Crockett which was moved from the original cabin site after the cabin was dismantled.
