CREATING THE VISION
Launched in the state of Tennessee (where Crockett was born) on August 17, 2012 (David Crockett's 226th Birthday), NATIVE SUN PRODUCTIONS donated 6 specially edited Crockett videos from their award-winning documentary "Boone & Crockett: The Hunter Heroes" (courtesy of the HISTORY channel) to the Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park in Limestone (as well as a 4 mural kiosk), the Crockett Tavern Museum in Morristown (along with 2 interpretive panels), David Crockett State Park in Lawrenceburg (plus 4 interpretive murals, and an EPICArt® mural & banner), and the East Tennessee Historical Society in Knoxville.
NATIVE SUN also designed Crockett site-specific interpretive murals (2 at each location) for:
Sycamore Shoals State Park
Warrior's Path State Park
Cumberland Mountain State Park
Chickasaw State Park
Big Cypress Tree State Park
One of NATIVE SUN'S largest accomplishments for The Crockett Heritage Trail© was their work for Discovery Park of America in Union City. Creating 3 unique David Crockett exhibits on the historical grounds and main museum building includes a film on Crockett's life (Main museum); the 6 edited Crockett videos, 3 Crockett interpretive panels and historical display of artifacts (Crockett Cabin); an entire room dedicated to Crockett's life story (Liberty Hall) that includes the 6 edited videos, 9 Crockett interpretive murals, 3 beautiful window treatments, a giclée of the famous Harding portrait of Crockett, a display case full of Crockett artifacts, and a 3D display of Crockett's most famous quote, "Be always sure you are right, then Go Ahead!"
Future sites include the Tennessee State Museum in Nashville, Reelfoot Lake State Park in Tiptonville, and the Crockett Cabin in Rutherford. Other CHT© areas in Tennessee include Memphis, Winchester, Paris,
Natchez Trace/Gordon's Ferry, Murfreesboro, Fayetteville/Camp Blount, Rogersville, and many more.
