The Last Davy Crockett Home Restored by Sashco
Sashco, The Log Home Maintenance Experts, and the Little Rock Eagle Scouts were proud to restore the historic last home of Davy Crockett.
Davy Crockett—historic legend, pioneer, politician, and American hero. The very name Davy Crockett brings forth timeless images of America’s historic past. For years, Davy Crockett and his fellow frontiersman have marked the pages of history and inspired the playtime parody for little lads.
This cabin, located in Rutherford, Tennessee is the reconstructed home of Davy Crockett. He settled on a farm where the cabin resides. Following his last defeat for reelection to congress, he left for Texas , where he died in the Alamo massacre.
The cabin now serves as a memorial to him and as a frontier museum. Davy Crockett’s mother is also buried at this location, behind the cabin. Within the cabin are original artifacts that have been preserved all these years and many of the original logs date back to the 1820’s.
The building is in fair condition, however it badly needs maintenance in order to preserve it for future generations to enjoy. Davy Crockett was regarded as an upstanding citizen and a heroic man of integrity who was held in high esteem by his fellow men. In the same spirit, we hope to protect this historic site to continue the legend and history of Davy Crockett’s life.
The cabin is located at 219 N. Trenton St. (Old Highway 45 West) in Rutherford, Tennessee 38369. Map
