Tennessee has a rich history and there are many places that are markers of the past. And, while we can learn quite a bit about how difficult things were in the past by taking a look at monuments and buildings, it is difficult to get a feel for how the people who lived in those buildings actually went about their daily life. Rob Wilds recently went to one of the most historic homes in Middle Tennessee, the Oaklands in Murfreesboro, where history was coming to life.
