Cookeville and the surrounding area has many other attractions that may be of interest to you. Here are just a few:
- Cookeville Depot - Originally built in 1909, the Cookeville Depot Museum is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, and is the heart of Cookeville's historic Westside District. The museum houses many Tennessee Central Railway artifacts, as well as an HO scale replica of what Cookeville's Westside looked like in the summer of 1955. On the other side of the diorama is a replica of a coal tipple with a model train loading up with coal.
- Cream City Sign - Just across from the Depot on West Broad Street is the Cream City Ice Cream sign. Erected in 1950, it was the largest neon sign between Nashville and Knoxville and people came from far and wide to see it. Along with the Depot, the sign is among some of Cookeville's most photographed subjects. Watch for renovations happening soon!
- Dogwood Park - Directly behind the Cookeville History Museum at 30 East Broad Street is Cookeville's beautiful Dogwood Park. A green oasis in the downtown area, it's a popular place for lunchtime picnics. A large performance pavilion is located in this park where outdoor concerts and annual Shakespeare in the Park performances are performed. This park is also home to a dazzling interactive fountain which flows daily throughout the spring/summer season.
