Past Rugby lies Allardt, a settlement established by German land agent Bruno Gernt in hopes of establishing a self-sufficient city on the Cumberland Plateau. Several buildings remain in the Allardt Historic District, including Gernt’s office and home. In Jamestown, the Old Fentress County Jail and several other locally quarried sandstone buildings make for a nice historic downtown.
Next, Byway visitors make it to the homeplaces of famed Tennesseans Sgt. Alvin C. York and Cordell Hull, whose contributions to our country merited listings on the National Register of Historic Places. As you approach Dale Hollow Lake, you pass through Byrdstown by the Historic Pickett County Courthouse into Livingston, home of a classic example of a historic Southern courthouse square.
Finally, the Byway terminates in Celina at the convergence of the Cumberland and Obey Rivers where logs were rafted down to Nashville and the original Clay County courthouse still stands as it did when it was built in 1873.
