Brian Allison, history consultant and author, joined us to discuss his new book, Notorious Nashville. This book includes stories of notorious criminals like John Dillinger, Jesse James and other colorful characters who strode across the national stage as well as some of the long-forgotten lives of some of the city’s most desperate citizens. There were even some Sumner County tales also.

Thanks to Debbie Lewis who played the fiddle and to Pamela Lambert who exhibited her Fraktur artwork, for making our opening day so special. Also thanks to our docents who were dressed in clothing of the periods represented by our house (1810-1860) and to other volunteers who greeted and served refreshments to our guests.
