HARDIN COUNTY is a historical and cultural place in the Americas.
The site of one of the most important fights in the history of our civil war is Hardin County. The land of the battle in Silo was since turned into a state park with the preservation of Native American mounds and a museum, monuments, walking, cycling, wildlife, a bald eagle, a historical church and tours. In the large, stately mansion on the river Tennessee named “The Cherry Mansion,” Ulysses S. Grant, the General and eventual President of the United States, established the Union’s union headquarters. This historic building is currently the location for the annual music event “The Sunset Symphony” and is hosting every year to the local kids an Easter egg hunt.
Hardin County boasts a lovely library, a Tennessee River Museum with artifacts of the American and American Civil War, and various magnificent parks, including Tennessee Street Park, Shiloh National Park, Pickwick State Landing Park, and more. Other parks include a tennis court, a skate park, a splendid veteran’s park overlooking central Savannah with giant flags, and Wayne Jerrolds, river park named after the local bluegrass legend.
Much of Hardin County culture is music and local cuisine. Our region is famous for the bluegrass and rural music of Wayne Jerrolds and Darryl Worley, with famous musicians from our city. One of the best ways of experiencing our local culture is to participate in one of our annual bluegrass festivals, the Tennessee River Run in Pickwick, to travel down the Tennessea river through the beautiful Pickwick Belle and to enjoy homemade meals in our Savannah and Pickwick local restaurants.
Hardin County is a great place to retire or to raise your family if you love a quiet life of tranquility, small towns and outdoor fun not far from larger urban areas.
