2012 Mansker’s Station

North Nashville was once considered to be part of Virginia with the Cumberland River as the North Carolina boundary. Land grants for early settlements are on file in Frankfort KY, not in Nashville.

Andrew Jackson Chapter TNSSAR has been regularly represented in historical activities at Mansker’s Station during the presidencies of Frank Jones and Maurice Kellogg. Our photographer overexposed our electronic film. Pictures below are compliments of a Mississippi neighbor.
