Cordell Hull

Those passionate about the history of the U.S. are sure to enjoy visiting the Cordell Hull Birthplace State Park in Byrdsville that celebrates the legacy of eastern Tennessee's famous son, Cordell Hull. The main attraction of the park is the refurbished log cabin where Cordell Hull was born, as well as the museum housing a number of personal items this outstanding person who was the Secretary of State in the administration of Franklin Roosevelt used to own. The museum also exhibits the Nobel Peace Prize Hull received for his contribution in creating the United Nations. The park is also home to a number of annual events, including the Cordell Hull Folk Festival and the Roller Coaster Yard Sale.
