Ligonier Valley

Read Ebooks - its cool!


In the late 18th century, Limestone, Tennessee, saw a quick succession of fascinating events. Washington College Academy, named after Pres. George Washington, was opened in 1780. In 1786, Limestone was the birthplace of Davy Crockett, America's most famous frontiersman and folk hero, and in 1792, the community's signature stone dwelling, the Colonel Gillespie House, was built. A Civil War battle was later fought in the town. Limestone prospered in the early 20th century as a watering stop for livestock trains but then declined as a rural trading center with the popularity of the automobile. Through fire, floods, war, and economic downturn, this unincorporated community's rural spirit enabled Limestone to successfully meet the needs of its citizens into the 21st century.
