Clarksville Tennessee HistoryClarksville, TN – In 1780 a group of 300 daring pioneers decided to journey upon the Tennessee River and the Cumberland River in flatboats and canoes.

The destination for some of them would be present day Montgomery County, upon the Red River at the mouth of Passenger Creek. Yet, in order to arrive at their destination they had to guide their boats through a frontier full of Native Americans determined to attack them.

Why would they attempt such an endeavor which seemed to almost promise violence, deprivation, and other hardships?

Jason Minton Molds a Strong Friday the 13th Show in Franklin Tennessee

 

Kimbros Pickin' ParlorFranklin, TN – What’s a native Tennessean who spent his life surrounded by the country music industry but grew up listening to the power pop pleasantries and British sensations like Squeeze and Crowded House to do? If you’re Jason Minton you form a rock band built on a foundation of faith and strong acoustic sensibilities.

In a live setting he looks the part of a rugged country boy. When he sings you’re transported back to the new wave revolution of the 80’s. That’s what we discovered when we finally caught the Jason Minton Band in concert in Franklin, Tennessee on January 13th, 2017 at Kimbros Pickin’ Parlor on South Margin Street.

Singer/songwriter Jason Minton shows a lot of promise in Franklin.

The History of Renfroe Station on the Red River, 1780 – Part 1

 

Clarksville Tennessee HistoryClarksville, TN – Have you heard the story of the first frontier settlement on the Red River? 

Many times the history beneath our feet here in Montgomery County is not in the forefront of our minds.  It can be easily forgotten that the many places we live, shop, or work every day contain stories from multiple historical periods of Tennessee. In this case, it is the history of westward expansion and the Indian Wars of the 18th century. 

People may wonder why these stories matter.  Many of us were at one time young students who felt history class was incredibly boring and even called it our least favorite subject.  Yet, in truth, it is those who devote some time to the subject in depth who are a very fortunate group of people.  They gain insights and knowledge; they increase their wisdom.
