source : Only In Tennessee

The town of Belvidere, Tennessee is nestled in a sweet hamlet of southern country comfort. Surrounded by lush plant life and enveloped in state history, it’s a great visit whether or not you’re visiting Falls Mill – and we’d most definitely recommend it. The mill is a peek into the past, and you may feel as if Sleeping Beauty or Snow White will come waltzing out of the forest, perfectly at home.
