If you are looking for a bit of history while you visit Fall Creek Falls State Park. One great option is the Pioneer Hall Museum. The building, originally constructed as the second Academy building of the Pleasant Hill Academy, was completed in 1887. During the rich history of the structure, it served as a dormitory, academic classrooms, a library, and offices. It remains today as a reminder of the rich history of the Pleasant Hill Academy and the surrounding community.
Visitors will enjoy exhibits, representing the lifestyle of early Cumberland County. Among the exhibits are a period appropriate country store, dormitory rooms, the principal’s office, tools of historic health care as well as period appropriate arts and crafts. As you might expect, Pioneer Hall earned it place on the National Register of Historic Places in the late seventies. Make sure you take some time during your Fall Creek Falls vacation to take in the history of Pioneer Hall Museum. The Pioneer Hall Museum is located on Main Street in Pleasant Hill, TN, and is open open from the early of May to late October each year. There is no charge, but donations are happily accepted.
