Last Monday my daughter and I ventured to Silver Hill to go blackberry picking. We encountered a lovely quiet space and a GIGANTIC blackberry bush. According to owner and photographer Vincent Wallace, “Silver Hill is a place for Wild Blackberry picking, bonfires, photography and arts instruction, and the occasional fun event for the whole family, like ice cream socials, nature walks and the like!” Silver Hill is conveniently located in Franklin at 3916 E. McEwen Drive, Franklin, TN 37067 near the corner of Wilson Pike and E. McEwen Drive. Vincent can be reached at 615.275.9266. Keep up to date with announcements by joining the Silver Hill open Facebook group. Occasionally they need to close to allow for the berries to ripen. Join the group and check it out!

Exploring: Landmark Booksellers, Franklin, TN

I have had ‘Visiting Landmark Booksellers’ in historic downtown Franklin, TN on my list for way too long. I needed to order a book last week so I called up Carol. She placed the order Monday morning and the book arrived after lunch on Tuesday. Easy peasy.

Landmark Booksellers proclaims itself to be ‘A Booklover’s Paradise’ and I cannot disagree. It is a quiet enclave of old and new books, rare editions, signed editions, maps, prints, and other ephemera. It resides in the Old Factory Store built in 1826 and claiming illustrious visitors such as General Andrew Jackson and Davy Crockett.

With reading spots and nooks in each room, including an upstairs kitchen housing a great selection of cookbooks and a children’s room in the back, it is a very welcoming place. Landmark Booksellers is located at 114 East Main Street in Franklin and open every day from 10AM to 5PM. Stop by, browse a while and sit a spell.
