COLUMBIA TN - James K. Polk Presidential Home & Museum | Truly Remarkable Life
I (Craig) took a little bit of a retreat to the country in the form of a road trip between June 23 - 28, 2017 and ended up exploring the Natchez Trace just south of Nashville, TN, I came across the home of the 11th President of the United States, James K. Polk. Much to my surprise, it was quite an interesting stop with rare and well-preserved history. The town itself wasn't overwhelmingly beautiful, but it does boast a very Back to the Future -like town square.
I would also recommend driving around within a few blocks of the square to find the beautiful old homes. They are very picturesque.
I was able to stop for photos and antique browsing at the square, and had lunch at the Market Square Café. It was very good, but I'd recommend something other than their signature dish -- the Tennessee Hot Brown. It was interesting, but the menu was so great that I left wishing I'd have tried something that wasn't swimming in alfredo sauce. Okay, so I can say I tried it ONCE.
There is just enough to do in Columbia to make an afternoon of it along your way down the Natchez Trace.
Be sure to look up the Meriwether Lewis historic sight in nearby Hohenwald, TN.
I plan to make it back someday to hit many of the old south plantations and civil war sites that are scattered along the Natchez Trace. In the meanwhile, I thought this would make a fitting Independence Day video! Enjoy!

Presidential Places #20, James K. Polk House
It's hard to find any places still extant that relate to the short-termed pre-Civil War Presidents like James K. Polk (1845-49). In lieu of his mansion that was torn down over a century ago, we have left this modest house in Columbia, TN where the future President lived off and on during the time he was a college student at UNC. Polk is a fascinating figure about who has too low a profile in American history.

The House of Representatives passed Congressman Scott DesJarlais’ bill to study the feasibility of placing the President James K. Polk Home and Museum in Columbia, Tennessee, under protection of the National Park Service. An Interior Department study would be a major step towards helping the charity that maintains the property to preserve and expand it.

Resolution To Dig Up U.S. President's Body Approved
NASHVILLE, Tenn. --The Tennessee Senate passed a resolution Monday that would allow the body of former President James K. Polk to be exhumed and moved to a fourth resting place. Polk and his wife, Sarah, are currently buried on the grounds of the state Capitol. The resolution would allow the bodies to be exhumed and moved about 50 miles south to Columbia to the grounds of the James K. Polk Home and Museum. The proposal has riled some folks in Tennessee who think the move desecrates the body of the nation’s 11th president. Polk, a former Tennessee governor, died of cholera in June of 1849, just three months after leaving the White House.

Plan To Dig Up U.S. President's Body Deemed Mortifying By Family
President James K. Polk did big things for America, dramatically expanding its borders by annexing Texas and seizing California and the Southwest in a war with Mexico. In a proposal that has riled some folks in Tennessee, state lawmakers want to move Polk’s body to what would be its fourth resting place in the nearly 170 years since he died of cholera. The plan is to exhume Polk’s remains and those of his wife, Sarah, from their white-columned tomb on the grounds of the state Capitol in Nashville and take them about 50 miles to his father’s home, now known as the James K. Polk Home and Museum, in Columbia. Teresa Elam, who says she is a seventh-generation great-niece of the childless Polk, called the whole idea “mortifying.”
