Centennial Park is chock full of American history. The land itself once held a farm. Which isn’t unusual for older settlements in the south, but what is unusual is the owner. Centennial Park’s land was owned and kept by Anne Robertson Johnson Cockrill, a woman. Cockrill was the first for many things in Tennessee. She was the first woman in Tennessee to be allocated a land grant. Which she earned by leading a pack of women, while she was injured, in a counter-attack to defend the early settlement of Nashville. She was also the first school teacher in the state. Since then the land has served many purposes including being a race track, state fairgrounds, and the location of the Tennessee Centennial and International Exposition held in 1897. Cockrill’s feisty feminine persona can still be felt watching over the park today.
There’s a lot to do in this park. Visit the Parthenon, a museum on park grounds. Or have a picnic by Centennial’s Lake Watauga. Don’t forget that fishing is allowed in the lake, so make sure to pack your poles into one of the several outer compartments in your RV Rentals Nashville motorhome rental.
