Anyone who has watched HGTV or This Old House quickly realizes that the dream of living in a historic home is not for everyone. What about living in a modern home in one of Tennessee’s most historic towns?
Cross Plains is the oldest settlement in Robertson County. It was founded in 1779 by white settlers who were led to the area by Thomas Kilgore. Kilgore had spent the previous summer in a nearby cave, keeping hidden from unfriendly natives. Today downtown Cross Plains is home to several historic buildings including Thomas Drugs Old Fashioned Soda Fountain, offering pharmacy services and classic fountain specialities. The Graves Market building is home to Cottontown Bears and Gifts and Tate Automotive has been in business since 1929. Visitors also come to the Doctor’s House Museum, home to the Cross Plains Heritage Commission which hosts Trash & Treasures every June. Cross Plains was once home to Neophogen College which closed in 1877 although the only remnant of the institution is a stone sign on display at the Cross Plains city hall.
Want to live within walking distance of all this? Take a look at 157 Kilgore Trace in Cross Plains. This 3-bedroom home includes a huge back yard, extensive landscaping, and a detached workshop. Inside you will find custom kitchen cabinets and granite countertops in both the kitchen bathrooms; well-maintained wood, tile, and carpeted flooring.

The home is directly across the street from East Robertson High School, adjacent to the beautiful Kilgore Park. Kilgore Park features walking trails, playground, ball fields and a creek-side stage that hosts outdoor concerts including the Kilgore Station Bluegrass festival in the springtime.
