Cookeville, TN Info
Welcome back to Cookeville, TN for the 2019 Expo. It promises to be another huge success. Cookeville is located on Interstate 40 which runs east-west through Tennessee. Cookeville is home of Tennessee Tech University and is in the Upper Cumberland region of Middle Tennessee. It is billed as the “Heart of the Highlands of Tennessee”. Within 40 minutes are three lakes made by the Army Corp of Engineers. Depending on your direction of travel, you may pass near or through Nashville and the Grand Ole Opry, Memphis and its music tradition of Blues and Rock and Roll or Great Smoky National Park. No matter which direction you are driving, you will pass by numerous excellent state parks and many Civil War Battlefields. 15 minutes from the cluster of motels, is Burgess Falls State Park, located on the Falling Water River, is a day use park, noted for its natural beauty and four waterfalls that cascade down from over 250 feet in elevation. The last of these falls is the most spectacular, plunging more than 130 feet into the gorge. The area was originally populated by Native Americans of the Cherokee, Creek and Chickasaw tribes. Your choice of culture, history and nature awaits your interest. Likewise, 15 minutes from the Expo site is Cummins Falls. Cummins Falls State Park is an idyllic, but rugged, 211-acre day-use park located nine miles north of Cookeville on the Blackburn Fork State Scenic River on the Eastern Highland Rim. The area has been a scenic spot and swimming hole for local residents for more than 100 years. Cummins Falls is Tennessee’s eighth largest waterfall in volume of water and is 75 feet high. Cookeville has all the popular chain restaurants and some famous local ones like Ralph’s Donuts, Lazy Cow Ice Cream and Cream City Ice Cream. If you know or have met me, you can tell I highly recommend all of them! The closest large airport is 70 miles to the west on the east side of Nashville. Knoxville and Chattanooga Tennessee also have airports and are 100 and 110 miles respectively from Cookeville.
Very important that you make your reservations as soon as possible and mentions “Katahdin Sheep” or “sheep expo”. They will hold them up til 3 weeks before Expo. You can always cancel your reservation if needed later. Be sure to call each hotel directly for rates not thru online website.
