Honeysuckle Hill Farm
Once upon a time, almost everyone in Tennessee knew a lot about farming. But in these times when family farms are fading away, fewer of us know where our food actually comes from. That is particularly true of children. That is where Honeysuckle Hill Farm comes in. It's a history, dietary and economics lesson all rolled into a fun experience, as Rob Wilds found out when he traveled to Springfield, TN to pay the farm a visit - and he wasn't the only visitor there that day. Watch this and more episode segments of Nashville Public Television's Tennessee Crossroads.
Bessie Smith Cultural Center
A museum may show us a bit about what life looked like, while performers may help bring that past to life for a bit. It isn't too often that both things happen at the same place, but one place where they do is in Chattanooga, TN. Tennessee Crossroads went there to take a look at the Bessie Smith Cultural Center. Watch this and more episode segments of Nashville Public Television's Tennessee Crossroads.
Charlene’s Colony of Shops
Usually, most people go to crowded malls and shopping centers out of necessity and not for the experience. However, Tennessee Crossroads visits a place called Charlene's Colony of Shops in west Tennessee that is different than the traditional stores we're accustom to. Join Nashville Public Television's Tennessee Crossroads to find out more about Charlene's Colony of Shops.
