Perspective is a funny thing: the same structure or sight can be considered ugly by some and deeply moving by others, and these feelings can reverse with time. In our travels we encounter many such places and judge their worth based on our own backgrounds. The controversial Mindfield Cemetery in Brownsville, Tennessee is a perfect example of one such place. Stay in one of our hotels in Brownsville, TN to explore this rural town rich with antebellum history. Whether admiring Gothic Revival architecture dating from the 19th century or driving one of our Brownsville rental cars past sprawling family farms, your stay in Brownsville will be saturated with the vivid history and culture of a region steeped in musical heritage and southern charm.
Once you've had a moment to check in to one of the hotels near Brownsville, TN, make your way to the Mindfield Cemetery on South Monroe Avenue. Don't worry, it's not quite the usual sort of graveyard you're probably imagining, and you don't need a personal connection to appreciate it. This acre lot jammed with towering steel girder structures is local artist Billy Tripp's ongoing tribute to his deceased parents. Wander the lot, and admire the planning and effort that Tripp has poured into this monument dedicated to those who raised him. As someone who cares about making your mark on the world, you'll walk away feeling deeply moved by the scope and spirit of the project. The structures are often lit up at night, which is a truly inspiring sight if you aren't already asleep in one of our Brownsville hotels. Should you need to get your nature fix, head over to the scenic Hatchie River, which is an ideal spot to snag a catfish or spot an alligator snapping turtle; just mind your fingers.
Want to test your perspective in new ways? Make your next stop in one of the hotels in Memphis, which is one of Tennessee's major cultural hubs. Savor the barbecue, or soak up some soul music; although perhaps you're a vegetarian or prefer classical music, the vibrance of this place is undeniable, and anyone can enjoy that.
