The Chicken Wire Minnie Pearl in Centerville Tn
Minnie Pearl was from Grinders Switch that is located in Hickman County. The town square of Centerville was recently restored and is located in one of the most beautiful areas in Tennessee with all the rolling hills and natural rock bluffs.
Minnie Pearl overlooks Centerville TN on top of a small bluff, just east of downtown on 100 going north, toward Nashville Tn. It was so cool to see a sculpture honoring an American icon. She looks great, overlooking the garden that is maintained by the Centerville Garden Club. It’s the perfect place for her, as the gardens are full of miniature roses named “Cousin Minnie Pearl.”
