      The Sergeant Alvin C. York State Historic Park is located in Pall Mall off of highway 127 in northern Tennessee.

      Our home school group often holds our meetings at this historical site because of its natural beauty and heritage.

      The kids get to learn how the mill was used for grinding corn into cornmeal and grits.

      They get to see how

      the water flows into the water wheel that operates the grinder.

      On one such occasion we had a ranger come out to tell the kids the history of the park and how it got its name.

      He brought some flint and demonstrated how to make an arrowhead for the kids in the same fashion that the native Indians did many years ...

      • ago.

        They then did a treasure hunt and learned how to identify different types of animal footprints.

        It was a very hot day, but the breeze blowing through the valley and trees across the river really felt good.

        We had a picnic lunch in one of the two picnic shelters that are on the premises.

        We had potato sack races and

        a hundred yard dash.

        Then some of the kids decided to tell stories.

        Every one had fun even the littlest kids because they got to play in the grassy area next to the shelter house.

        The Sergeant Alvin C.

        York State Historic Park is a great place to visit when you are looking for something to do no matte how old you are.
