Tracy City, TN
Think of a time when mowing, not just your yard but a whole field, was done by hand. While that seems like an almost impossible task, many people still prefer to do it that way. And for those people, no place in Tennessee is more important than Tracy City, TN because, as Tennessee Crossroads found out, that's the home of one of the oldest scythe makers in the country. Join Nashville Public Television's Tennessee Crossroads to find out more about Marugg Scythes.
When you start a collection, you never know how things will go. Sometimes your collection grows so big there is hardly enough room in your house for anything else. Then what? Well, maybe you decide to create a museum to house your treasures. That's how the Museum of Appalachia came into being back in 1969. It's grown quite a bit since then. Tennessee Crossroads paid a visit to Clinton in East Tennessee to find out about the latest chapter in the museum's history.
