It is an outside display filled with bridges and tunnels that go through the trees and miniature models of many Tennessee landmarks. It is a delight to walk through or just sit and watch. We took Parker who loves trains and he was fascinated with it. At first he could not decide which way to go!
This is the mansion at Cheekwood, built by Leslie Cheek who was in the wholesale grocery business in Nashville when he invested in his nephew's idea of developing a superior blend of coffee. The coffee became know as Maxwell House and Leslie Cheek and his wife Mabel Wood Cheek built this house and garden in 1933. It opened to the public in 1960. It houses an art collection.
We had to visit the trains three times while we were there and we cooled off by wading the creek before we left! It was a great way to spend the morning!
