Enjoy Historic Amis Mill Eatery in Rogersville, Tennessee

Some of the best found places are near you to enjoy. I found that to be true when I spent today with my wonderful sisters in the historic Town of Rogersville, Tennessee. Just a few miles from our own historic town of Greeneville, Tennessee is yet another little town that lets you enjoy a slow peaceful feel when you enjoy all it has to offer with it"s historic country charm.
Found off the beaten path is a beautiful historic restaurant called Amis Mill Eatery in Rogersville, Tennessee. Known as ""The Mill" Circa 1781 holds history.
From the Amis Mill Web Site:

The Amis Mill Eatery & Trading Post is an on site recreation of the original facility and services offered by Capt. Amis to settlers headed into the wilderness.
Captain Thomas Amis built a fort, mill and dam, circa 1781, at Big Creek on the Great Indian Warpath Trail (later Old Stage Road) with the assistance of friend and fellow settler Scots-Irish John Carter. He then built the trading post (store), blacksmith shop, forge, distillery, tannery and eventually his home, circa 1781, which was used not only for his family but also to board and feed settlers and travelers. This was the last roof one could sleep under before heading into the wilderness and on into Kentuck. The wagon trail ended at Amis and only pack trails continued on to Bean Station and the Cumberland Gap. Daniel Boone and company frequented Amis while blazing the Cumberland Gap trail.
Capt. Thomas Amis, by any assessment, was an unswerving patriot who became a prominent player in North Carolina's efforts to defeat the Redcoats and their civilian allies known as Tories and Loyalists. But after hiding the famed "Swamp Fox" Francis Marion more than once at his Mill on Drowning Creek, Amis' bravery and willingness to help in the cause of freedom would establish him as a marked man. His family would be driven from their home by the enemy, prompting the following directive from Governor Richard Caswell..."Ordered that a Protection for Mr. Amis's Waggons, while employed in removing his family, & c., out of the way of the Enemy, be enclosed." Amis was granted a thousand acres in Sullivan Co. NC.( later Hawkins Co., Tn.)
Picture of the Mill way back when from the web site:

"Yum they were good!!

Yes those salads they got looked good but I looked forward to there slow smoked pulled pork that is pulled for perfection and the home cut fries they made "It was SO GOOD"" I love good BBQ!!!
Before we left I browsed there Amis Mill Eatery Souvenirs

#Win New!! PillsburyŽ Baguette Chips 2 Flavors In 6 Bags #Giveaway Ends 7/7 US Only

Have you heard the Flavorful News?!?!  Pillsbury has a NEW Baguette Chip they have available for you to buy in stores now, in Two New exciting flavors!! Which one will you try first?

                         Cheddar Sun-Dried Tomato~~~ OR ~~~~Italian Cheese & Herb
                                    This was a tasty review in which we LOVED!!  Yum!!
                   I couldn't decide which flavor to try first ;) So I tried the Cheddar Sun-Dried Tomato and had my hubby to give the Italian Cheese & Herb a try.  Then we swapped bags and tried the other flavor.  I myself loved them both. My hubby liked them both to but favored the Italian Cheese & Herb best.
                                      You can enjoy either flavor in the 7 ounce bag. And each choice has 50% less fat than regular potato chips.The Pillsbury baguette chips is a crunchy chip that is cut from oven-baked bread and then deliciously seasoned. You can enjoy them on their own, partnered with dip, or in a variety of other ways.
      I can think of a few other ways they can be enjoyed. I think the Cheddar Sun-Dried Tomato flavor would be ideal tossed into a garden salad. Or the Italian Cheese & Herb flavor added to a hot bowl of any type soup. I thought both choices were very crunchy, yet became a filling bite of snack in my mouth that satisfied my snack want. I can see taking both choices along for any number of snack needs to please the crowd. Enjoyed at tail gate parties, movie snacks, car trips, camping or anywhere!!  They are thick enough to dip into a dip & not break off in your fingers or have to double dip. I really liked both flavors :) and thanks to the Myblogspark team & General Mills  for the 6 Bags I received for our tasty review in the two new flavors!!
                                     See them here in my photo
