Exciting things are happening in Milton, Tennessee. Months of extensive floor to ceiling restoration is nearing an end and the much-anticipated grand opening of The Gathering at Milton, a historic event venue will be celebrated, Saturday, Oct. 13, with a Fall Market and Craft Fair. The 100-year-old building sits near the Milton Post Office.
The vision of new owners Alanna and Phillip Vaught is to bring back the building as an inviting place where people can continue to gather and make new memories. A great autumn day of family fun is planned. Nestled 15 miles northeast of Murfreesboro, just off state Route 96, the rural hamlet will buzz with music, food trucks, children’s activities -- including a miniature petting zoo and about 50 carefully selected vendors of hand-crafted merchandise, yummy home made food from baked goods to jellies, antiques, original art work, wood working, metal creations, and so much more for all ages to enjoy.
Formerly, it was Manuel’s Cajun Country Store known for its authentic Cajun music and food and earlier Cherry’s Store, which reportedly had the community’s first television.
