The community, founded in 1810, was the Pulaski County seat through much of the 1800s.  The district, a national historic landmark, encircles the entire community and contains 26 of the original log or wooden buildings including an inn which served as a stagecoach stop, a jail, hanging house, store, churches and several private residences.  The Wilderness Road Regional Museum includes rooms furnished in period style and several outbuildings.  A great way to spend an afternoon.
