Across the Plains

Originally published by the Cross Plains Heritage Commission as part of Tennessee’s bicentennial celebration in 1986, “Across the Plains: A History of Cross Plains, Tennessee” by Rita A. Read is once again available. Order your copy today! Limited copies are also available at the Doctor’s House museum.

In this patchwork of pictures and journals, letters and stories, memories and recollections, Rita A. Read has captured a moving, living portrait of Cross Plains, Tennessee—a small, rural American town. From the stories of its early settlers, the memories of its soldiers, the development of its churches and schools a picture gradually emerges of not just a town but its people—a people collectively endowed with colorful spirit, humor, and humanity.
