CROCKETT CABIN IN RUTHERFORD—Chapters in my district of Daughters of the American Revolution make annual donations to the cabin. Reelfoot DAR is the most active and in touch with the Cabin

I got permission to print this paragraph from a meeting report in the local paper. “Thank you Linda Lofton!“

Ms Lofton gave the TSDAR Historical site report about the David Crockett Cabin and Museum in Rutherford. It is a full-size replica of the Crockett family cabin restored with timbers from his mother’s cabin. All but a few of the logs from the original cabin were destroyed by fire before the cabin could be reconstructed on the site in Rutherford near the high school. If anyone is interested in visiting the cabin museum, they should contact Mayor Sandy Simmons at 731-655-7166 at Rutherford City Hall.
