Visitor Tips and News About Tombstone Junction
I took my family to Cumberland Falls, and we drove on across the bridge to Tombstone Junction. My parents took me there when I was 8 years old I am now 39. we walked in to the old town site and there are a few buildings left the old barn that look like a store inside. There is the old fun house that has the slanted floor -- the kids got a kick out of that -- and a small shed and some type of block building that looks like a storm shelter. I can't believe that someone hasn't rebuilt that place. Oh yeah -- the train and tracks are gone.[Jason Blanton, 10/24/2007]
Tombstone Junction was an amusement park just outside Cumberland Falls. It burned down in 1989. The sign remained for many years.The only thing that remains today is the vertical posts which used to hold the sign, the driveway, and the parking lot. There is a chain going across the entrance, but you can walk around it.
I have not had the chance to do it yet, but many students at nearby University of the Cumberlands park at both Cumberland Falls and Tombstone Junction, then hike from one site to the other.
You can see the area in satellite pictures, and there appears to be several buildings remaining.[Clark Embree, 03/09/2007]
