Historical Sites

Historic tourism is a growing success story in the US. In Tennessee, we are well blessed with an abundance of historic sites that could be better postured to draw thousands of tourists a year. The Blountville Civil War Battlefield project is an example of how we can experience local tax collections to expand due to visitors traveling along our interstates. This requires the state to work in partnership with local governments to develop restaurants, lodging and other tourist related venues to attract visitors and increase local revenues.
