Better than expected!

We really enjoyed hiking the trails to the cave here! The museum, although small, was crammed with various artifacts from Hull's life. The cabin was ok to look at as well.

The cabin was filled with info. You need to push the button to listen. Take a flashlight to the cave

We visited this park one afternoon and it was very informative. While the museum is small. It packs a lot of information. I liked how you could walk through the house easily and you could picnic at one of the few tables around the yard. After we ate, we hiked the loop trail to Bunkum Cave. What a great hike.... More

Small but interesting museum about a little-known statesman. I kept being amazed that someone born in a shabby cabin in the Tennessee woods eventually traveled to Moscow, Japan, and South America as Secretary of State. In addition to the museum, the cabin is open and stocked with items that might have been used by the Hull family, and the friendly... More
