We went thru the museum and house and they were interesting enough, but when one has seen as many of these kinds of places as we have, they all begin to look a lot alike. The star of the stop was the Bunkum Cave Trail....More

The birthplace museum was very nicely done. We mainly stopped to do Bunkham Cave. It was a great hike and very cool cave. We were able to explore a lot around it (properly). Well worth the time and effort to head out on the hike!!!!

We really enjoyed hiking the trails to the cave here! The museum, although small, was crammed with various artifacts from Hull's life. The cabin was ok to look at as well.

The cabin was filled with info. You need to push the button to listen. Take a flashlight to the cave

Interesting piece of history from my hometown. A lot of visitors have not heard of Cordell Hull. Check it out.

We visited this park one afternoon and it was very informative. While the museum is small. It packs a lot of information. I liked how you could walk through the house easily and you could picnic at one of the few tables around the yard....More
