Nashville Charter Bus
You are in for the time of your life on this charter bus excursion to the great city of Nashville. This is the country music capital of the world!
Mississippian culture Indians settled the area now known as Nashville, grew corn as their primary crop. These Indians are also known to have built earthen mounds and have been recognized as having created beautiful pottery. Although the Mississippian culture Indians appeared to have left the area at some point around 1400 A.D., Cherokee, Chickasaw and Shawnee Indians eventually moved into the area and used it as hunting grounds. Arrowheads are still found to this day throughout Nashville.
French fur traders were the first white men to arrive in the Nashville area, and in 1717 - established a trading post. The first settlement (Fort Nashborough, named in honor of General Francis Nash - Revolutionary War) was made on the banks of the Cumberland River by a group of pioneers led by Englishman James Robertson. The first known permanent settlement was established Christmas Day, 1779. In April 1780, a group of approximately 60 families led by John Donelson arrived to settle the new area - which at the time - remained a part of North Carolina. These settlers lived in small groups and built forts and stations to provide safety from Indians.
