"Where the Hilltops Kiss the Sky"
Doing business with the Town of Monterey?
Ready to Celebrate for the Season!
Located atop the Cumberland Plateau, a quieter spot located between the hustle and bustle of Cookeville and Crossville.
We're excited to provide some information about some great upcoming events that's coming to our little part of the world and invite you to come on up!
SPRING ON THE MOUNTAIN CELEBRATION IS MAY 3
What brought the railroad to the mountian? It was the natural resources such as timber and especially coal. The Town of Monterey (which means "King of the Mountinas") was founded by the Cumberland Mountain Coal Company in 1893. The community was known as Standing Stone before that.
Spring on the Mountain will be on Saturday, May 3, in downtown Monterey. There will be several craft and food vendors in the downtown area mostly around the Monteerey Depot Museum. Just across the railroad tracks, this year, will be a car show at the Farmer's Market. Also, at the Farmers Market, the Monterey Garden Club will host their annual and very popular plant sale from early morning until they run out.
An excursion train will arrive from Nashville sometime near noon. If you want to ride from Nashville, contact the Tennessee Central Railway Museum online at http://www.tcry.org/ If its a short ride you want, the Monterey Depot Historical Society is selling tickets for $10 each to ride from the museum out to the sand plant and back. Entertainment is being planned for the event.
After a hard, cold winter, y'all come on up to the mountain and help us kick off the spring season.
