The Cordell Hull Birthplace and Museum is a historic site owned by the State of Tennessee that was created as state park by an act of the Tennessee General Assembly in June 1997. The 58-acre site is located on the Highland Rim, near Byrdstown, north of Cookeville, close to the Kentucky border. The site includes a representation of Hull's log cabin birthplace and period gardens; the Cordell Hull Museum which displays a variety of photographs and artifacts; and an activities center. The park also includes the Hull Library and Archives that houses the entire Cordell Hull Collection consisting of more than 1,500 books and hundreds of original photographs, documents and three dimensional objects. The collection includes his Nobel Peace Prize, as a replica is on display in the museum. The park also features the beautiful Bunkum Cave Loop Trail that leads to an overlook and the actual entrance to historic Bunkum Cave where Cordell Hull's father made moonshine in the 19th century.
