Dating back to the early nineteen hundreds we have always been seekers of history, facts and truth.
My great grandfather traveled through Nashville, Tennessee with his home town traveling circus and carnival from Kokimo, Indiana and his “Petried Man 8th Wonder of the World” exhibit.
This is where the love and interest started for the education and history of Nashville, Tennessee.
Always mystified by Nashville’s rich history and true southern hospitality, Sam loved Nashville’s architecture and buildings like Nashville’s Union Station and The State Capitol.
Second Ave was Market Street and Broadway didn’t have Honky Tonk music joints until nineteen thirty when Jimmie Rodgers started performing at the river front bars of the Cumberland River in Nashville.
Sam traveled back to Nashville with his family as often as possible from Connecticut where he ended up planting his roots because of his work with Remington Arms in Bridgeport, Connecticut and entrance into the New England Hall of Fame for Horseshoe Pitching.
Some of us stayed in Nashville while others never stopped coming. I was one of them.
Sam wouldn’t recognize Nashville today or understand why we call it Music City.
