Two New Murals to be Installed at David Crockett State Park – Limestone, TN – August 17, 2018

  • During the month of August, two new interpretive murals are planned to be installed at the David Crockett Birthplace State Park in Limestone, TN.  The 4′ x 5′ murals will be placed into two free standing kiosks already built at the park.  They are scheduled to be unveiled for the 2018 David Crockett’s 232nd birthday on August 17.  Park manager Jackie Fischer directed the project to focus on the significance of the birthplace and young David’s eyewitness account of a near-tragedy on the Nolachucky river near his home.

The project was created and designed by Native Sun Productions with Gary Foreman and William Hamilton teaming up again to bring Crockett’s story to life.  This now makes twenty-three murals on David Crockett’s life the two have created going back ten years.
