DAVY'S 228TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION
AT CROCKETT TAVERN MUSEUM


Reenactors and volunteers show off their best period dress at the celebration of Davy Crockett's 228th birthday at the Crockett Tavern Museum in Morristown on Sunday, Aug. 17, 2014.  Many of the reenactors are a part of a local homeschool unit that helped with activities and demonstrations throughout the day.  Click here for more pictures from the event.



Among the items in the Crockett Store is "Crockett Cousins."  This genealogy has been reprinted and copies are available for delivery. This is the most complete genealogy of the Crockett Family from David's grandparents to present day. The 200+ page book should be in anyone's library if they are researching the Crockett Family tree.
