About Historic Mansker’s Station

Historic Mansker’s Station is the reconstructed 1779 frontier fort of Kasper Mansker, one of the first settlers in Sumner County. Period-dressed interpreters demonstrate 18th life century skills for the public and guests are allowed to enter into the log structures to learn about frontier life. Also on the property included with tours is the Bowen House that was originally constructed in 1787 by Captain William Bowen and was the birthplace of Tennessee Governor William Bowen Campbell. The Bowen House is said to be the oldest standing brick home in Middle Tennessee.
